I joined a new bee over on flickr. I know. I know. But I couldn't resist!! It was going to be more of a challenge bee and I was excited to see if I could meet that challenge. I have already had a blast and it only promises to get better!! I volunteered to go first and tossed around different ideas for my blocks.
My sister was using this Alexander Henry Larkspur bright bird fabric for a quilt for her MIL, and I love it. Surprise, I know. Me, liking birds in fabric??? Hmmmm....
Don't they just scream spring??? Back in late March, when I was planning this, spring was really lagging. And all the colors in the fabrics are favorites of mine. They are so fun just to look at, so that choice became simple.
My directions?? An asymmetrical block with part fussy cut bird and part traditional block. Here is my take on the challenge.
I will be sharing the blocks with you as I think about how to put the quilt top together, but if you would like to see the photostream of the bee, click here to check them out. (You will also see some fun trees that were requested for May)
