This is one of those projects that has been in my imagination for over a year now but somehow never made onto the actual fabric. My friend Denise finally got tired of me talking about it over and over & said "Just make it already!"... so here are a few little shots of a few of my favorite blocks. Now I am sure many of you have alredy heard of my technical woes, but I have to warn you that these photos are not great given that I managed to take 4 shots before my battery died and I realized that my battery pack was still in my quilters kitchen where I had last plugged it in.... I know, there's always a story :-)... My inspiration for this quilt... my all time favorite Cavallini bird, work and egg file folders. I file everything in these folders. In fact I make up reasons to make new folders becuase I just love the folders so much... I know, I know, my husband regularly tells me that I'm a bit "off"! Anyway, this quilt uses some of those wonderful alphabet letters from MODA American Jane fabrics along with a mix of my Allspice Tapestry, Urban Indigo, upcoming Dandelion Girl colors and some old time Japanese fabrics... and some MODA Dotties! I'm not completely done with the quilt yet but I can tell that its surely going to be one of my all time favorites. Its got words [my favorite thing to add to quilts], vintage birds, nests, and eggs, all surrounded by my favorite tones of butter yellow.... how could you not fall in love with a quilt like this. I can't wait to show you some better shots of it once I actually locate my battery charger... Talk soon.
