one more bird block

I finished another bird block for my Bird of Paradise quilt. This block was easy and fun to make. I have 9 blocks made now - I thought I'd lay them out for a look. They are in no particular order. I'd better tackle one of the more challenging blocks next - If I leave them all to the end... it won't be good :0)
I am having so much fun making this quilt!! Each block is so interesting and different.
I also finished the hand quilting project from the class I took. I want to make it into something - I'll have to think about it for awhile. Now I can get back to my 4 block applique quilt. I'm ready to start quilting the borders now - yeah!

Happy Quilting!!

Wow that blocks look beautiful together. The current block looks just like all the robins that are showing up here.

The whole cloth came out great. Maybe make a pillow from it?

Echo all of the above... and when I saw the hand-quilting block, I thought how good it would look with colored applique blocks around it - like those wonderful 'bird' blocks but on the same background fabric.
