I love birds

I fell in love with this bird fabric the first time I saw it ages ago; after pointing it out and drooling over it a million times I finally broke down and bought it. I wanted large blocks to show off the birds as much as possible.

When (if) it stops snowing, I'm going to take it to my local quilt shop to try to find a backing for it. If there's nothing there that'll go with it, I'll order the complement in the Rumba line by Hoodie for Blank Quilting. I'd like the immediate gratification of finding something local, though. With the smaller size of this, I might even be able to quilt it myself. 

I came home to some new fabrics that I ordered, too. Poppies in the Spice colorway by Michael Miller, that made me swoon when I saw it. So maybe today will see me cutting into that. Or into the jelly roll that I won. We'll see what the day brings...I love being able to sew on these snowy days when the thought of going outside makes me cringe. It brings some warmth to my life.
