At the moment it's just barely preemie quilt size. I'm trying to decide whether to stop here and back it or whether to keep going to make it bigger. This morning I dumped out my flannel scrap basket and sorted what's left into long strips, shorter strips, and smallish bits and pieces. Hopefully that will make it a little easier to locate a scrap that will work for the next step of whatever I'm making at the time. Obviously I was trying to keep to a red, white, and blue color scheme with this effort. I have quite a variety of prints and colors in the basket, and finding what I wanted was slowing the piecing process down significantly. I suspect I'm going to be working with the flannels a bit more before I return to the Birds challenge - which, by the way, is a challenge sponsored by a local group, not an internet thing.
The weather has turned cooler and more humid - more like what we consider normal for this time of year. I'm already missing the sunshine, but appreciate the lower temperatures!
