Work in some progress

We have been busy here these days. But still found some time to work on quilts. The pink quilt with birds with big eyes is a donation. I am working on binding. It is a simple Fibonacci square blocks and the squares are 2, 3, 5, 8 inches. The quilt is about 45 inches. The borders about 5 inches. Fast, fun and almost done.

 Picture 2, is a quilt from the book Birds of a Feather by Barb Adams and Alma Allen from Blackbird Designs. The final quilt will be 73" by 81" and there are pieced blocks among the appliqué. I am preparing several appliqué blocks ahead of time because DH will be receiving a most prestigious award at the land of Cervantes and I will have some airport time to put to a good use. What you see is some rough cut and glued/pinned pieces. The pieced blocks will be done later. Some of the blocks will have circles for "berries" and they are not here either.
Finally, DOQ, my local guild, has a block of the month. I love to participate on those. I forgot to take a picture of the ones from last month. These are the ones due now in May. Easy and fun. We make the blocks and someone will win them at the meeting. I do have many other "work in progress"; but that is a subject for another time. ;-)
