Sun or Rain? Little Bird

Bird, Machine Quilting, Lori Kennedy

Good Morning, Quilters and Birders!

My children laugh at me, but nothing excites me more than when I see a new bird in my yard.  A few weeks ago, the huge Pileated Woodpecker noshed at my feeder!  I’ve been trying to attract this woodpecker for years with all types of seed, suet and specialized feeders–so I shrieked when I saw him….(hence the ridicule!)

I hope he comes back again!

I’ve been busy working on The Big Quilt for my sister, but when my new, ten inch squares of Boundless Fabric arrived, I was distracted by the color!

The ten inch squares are perfect for little samples…and I love the fat quarters for vase quilts!

I’m going to add a lot more quilting, of course…

I want to play with some variegated thread…maybe a little metallic…

Perhaps this little ten inch “thumbnail” quilt will become a bigger quilt?

Rain or shine it’s always time to quilt!

Happy Stitching!
