Haven't gotten very far....



Julie asked to see the fabrics that I am using for my hour a day. So here they are, the hummingbird print, the eggplant, and some of the fabrics that will be in the ‘pastel’ blocks. You may not be able to tell from the photo that the dark with light little figure is eggplant and not brown or black, also, the brighter colors are colors that are in the hummingbirds, not just randomly chosen. I’m quite behind in this quilt, started late, caught up and then fell behind again, but I am doing it!

Friday I had Miss Thang again. This time she was in the mood to work on her purse again. We still need to press, attach the handle and do a finishing edge or two, but here it is so far. She’s excited about it, now that it looks like something, and hopes it will be finished in time for her to take with her when school starts on Aug. 6.

Thank you gail for sharing the fabrics that you're using. I love the hummingbird and egg plant pieces. I'm not very good at picking out fabric colors and rely a lot on the LQS to help me.
Great purse!

Great fabrics. This isn't a race, just a leisurely stroll down stitching lane............. Enjoy

Love the hummingbird fabric - reminds me of a long ago trip to Indiana to stay with family friends - they had feeders for hummingbirds just outside their kitchen window - coming from the UK I was totally overawed by this and watched them avidly

Love your fabrics for the hour a day. That hummingbird is too adorable. I'm making mine out of scraps and have no clue how it's all going to work out!

Gail,
The purse is looking AWESOME!!! I still love those fabric choices!!!

Also, the hummingbird fabric is gorgeous! Is it an old fabric or newer?? Do you have the name of who made it? When we go to our timeshare in Palm Desert there are hummingbirds all over the place. I just LOVE them!

Hugs
Laurie
