Three suns rising

I've finally made it back to my yellow birds today, and had quite a productive morning.

I grew my last sun block until it fitted with its fellows.


then I added them all onto the big piece I'd already done.


Then, for the umpteenth time I laid out my remaining yellow birds, changed my mind twice and ended up with the chunk that is now in the bottom right corner. All I need to do now is attach the top bird and then this side can be added on.


The remaining birds are not so much a well thought out set as the ones I haven't wanted anywhere else, so I'm hoping that they will not take this amiss and that I can piece them together without too much difficulty.  If that goes smoothly then I can think about what next.

The printed words are really helping pull this together for me. It's fun to watch what you add, but especially what words you are adding. :)

I agree with Yvonne. This quilt top is so warm looking... just looking at it brighten my snowy day.

oooh, i hadn't noticed the printing before. Is that a recent addition? As Yvonne says, it pulls it altogether so well

You have gotten your money's worth from the little printing kit! Like everyone else, I love the words. They are just the right touch. BTW how is it that the yellow birds is so close to completion? How did I miss this? It's as if you went from bits and fragments to a big solid piece. Good for you!

These really are a beautiful collection of fabrics. It's even harder to get a group to work well when they are such quiet values. I enjoy all the special touches you are adding.

I've loved watching these blocks come together, from such humble beginnings - I always look forward to seeing what you will do next :)

Oh my, this is really growing! I too love the words. And your sun blocks are so fun. This quilt makes me think of the Beatles' song "Here Comes the Sun". It looks like a summer morning!
