Here's a Little Hint of What I am Working on Now

After more than a week of no paper piecing, I was ready to start something new. It's always so exciting to see a new block progress. 

Last night I got this far:

I think you got a pretty good "hint" of what the block will be! I will probably finish it after work tonight.

I also finished quilting this UFO (table runner) and have the binding ready to hand sew on the backside.

I like to save hand binding for TV watching.  I rarely sit down in the family room to watch TV, but if I do, I need a project to do.  Are you like that, too? 

I am still hoping to begin hand quilting this king-sized quilt (104 inches square) very soon.

Geez, I sure hope I have picked the paper off this -- maybe that is why I have not begun to quilt it---can you imagine picking paper off this monster--it's entirely paper pieced. I actually call it "Birds of a Feather" as the center and each corner has a bird block. Patti, do you remember this one, now?

If I remember correctly, the bird patterns in this quilt came from  Linda Causee's book, "365 Foundation Quilt Blocks".   I made the quilt in 2007, so it's about time I get it finished and on the bed! I shall have to find it and see if the paper is still on. It will be a real bummer if it is!
