My mention that her top reminded me of my mom, who was a birder, was the impetus for the sweet mail. How sweet can a girl be? Apparently very.
And there's more! Preeti included the left-over backing fabric. The cutest feathers ever a bird could want. I decided to take her idea and fly with it. (Sorry, I couldn't help myself.) So tonight's Sunday Quilt Inspiration is birds.
From of the looks of these pretty little flyers, I like birds in blue and yellow colorings. However, these were just quickly grabbed, mostly based on the fact that the photos are more bird than background. Now for a few bird quilts.
And there you are: some birds, some birds on quilts, and a bird from a friend. You can find these bird quilts and another 150 on my "bird, quilts" Pinterest board. Thanks so very much, Preeti, for the block, the inspiration, and the reminder of my sweet momma. BTW, I've named the bird you sent Ellen, after my mom. As soon as it's finished, I'll share the block I plan -- hope? -- to make this week.
