Yellow Birds - all that's happening here

There is still literally no piecing happening here, though I am determined to make time for a bit tomorrow, if only so that I have something to share on AHIQ on Tuesday.  Trying to look on the bright side, I am telling myself that at least my hand quilting hasn't ground to a halt and Yellow Birds is coming along nicely - maybe half done.  

A couple of progress pics...


 and I am linking up with Kathy for Slow Sunday Stitching.

I love how your thread shows up on most of the fabrics in your quilt. Have fun quilting today.

This quilt is definitely on the bright side (in a very good and happy way). I'm glad you are still finding time for hand quilting, and I hope you piece some tomorrow.

Love seeing your progress on Yellow Birds. It looks like you are quilting with both gold pearle cotton and regular quilting thread, is that right? I like the way the gold thread reflects the light.

Nic e to see you're able to fit in some hand quilting. I am lagging sorely behind with AHIQ projects - life sometimes get in the way of quilting sadly!

You know, I keep reminding myself to slow down and enjoy. Yellow Birds is a delight. Quilting progress doesn't show much in photos but it's so important. Otherwise we just become Toppers. ;-)

This must be a wonderful project to work on at this time of year. Now that you are calling it Yellow Bird(s), I immediately start hearing the steel bands!

Beautiful hand quilting Kaja.
Orange and yellow are a couple of my favorite colors.

I like those close up shots. The variety of fabrics you used are so interesting. I have a post ready for tomorrow. The post is about what I got done over Thanksgiving weekend. No improv piecing, but I did use up scraps to make blocks, which made baby quilt tops.

Your quilting is very pretty. I really like those fabrics.

Love seeing little bits and pieces of your hand quilting! It looks beautiful as always. Hand quilting seems to make every quilt top just a little bit better than it was before.:)

Beautiful! My favourite kind of photos too. I hope you get to do a bit of piecing tomorrow. If not, hopefully you will find more time to do hand quilting.

Nice to see yellow birds again. I know my favourites are your lighthouse quilts but I have a feeling yellow birds may be a close runner up. I have been hand quilting recently, and wow, its sore on the fingers!

Such a feast for sore eyes!
