Busy, busy, busy

I"ve been busy with work and then took a trip out east to visit my mom and sister. Got back and then my pc crashed. I've finally got it back working and have a few minutes to breathe! I figured my first order of business was to get some birthday blocks done for the birthday block swap my group of friends and I are doing. Above is Roseanna's Hummingbird. We lost Roseanna this fall so se decided to make blocks that make us think of her and make the quilt for her brothers. I need to add some morning glories yet to make the block 9" square, but I had to share the hummingbird - isn't it great!

And this is a flower for Viki. I hope she likes Birds of Paradise! Actually I hope she can figure out what it is! Paper piecing isn't my strongest suit!

I"ve also been working on Emily's graduation quilt. I"ll have to get pictures of that later.

I was just sitting here watching several hummingbirds squabble over who will use the feeder while waiting for your blog to load. Your hummer is fantastic!!

Your blocks are beautiful! As much fun as it is to see paper piecing come together, I also have trouble with it. If I did it all the time it would prolly get easier.
I love those sharp points :-)

Hi! I just discovered your blog and will visit often. Your paper piecing work is amazing! Could you tell me where did you buy the hummingbird pattern or what company makes it so I can find a retailer? Cannot thank you enough!
