Now for a new challenge: "Birds of a Feather Flock Together." We are to use as much as possible of this fat quarter.
Pretty quickly I thought of the flocks of sparrows and finches that swoop around our house and yard this time of year. That led to the idea to make a neighborhood of houses. There hasn't been a lot of sewing of any kind going on in my house the last few days but today I finally sat down and made these:
The problem is that I'm not all that happy with them. They either need to be funkier... or smaller... or something. (These will finish at 8".) The bird print seems to call for the fresh new retro-modern prints that are out there now but that I don't own much of yet. I purchased a few specifically for this project. So far I have not discovered the magic way to get the results I want.
