I have to confess, when I first saw the block I assumed it was paper pieced and I got pretty nervous. I relaxed a bit when I realized it was improv pieced - it they were really fun to put together! I made three (in case I messed one up).
Mary asked us to name our birds. Here's the Bottle-Beaked Ruby Wren:
The Royal Winged Warbler:
Last, but not least, the Spotted Lantern Marthabird (named after my grandmother, who's quite fond of pink):
Mary asked us what our life-long passion is. I'd have to say books. Right now quilting is my passion, but I've only been quilting for eight years. Books, however, have always been a part of my life. I love reading. I read whatever is available and trawl the public library - I can't afford to buy books to keep up with my habit! I read on my commute and on the exercise bike. Reading is magic!
