Marie’s block number 5 -Pair of Golden Eagles – Complete!

marieHere are my Golden Eagles among the Aspens. Maybe now I can go back to making more of the eleventy million green leaves called for on this quilt. ~Marie

(The fabric Marie used for the birds is very special – It came from a dear friend who lives in Belgium – She had been saving the fabric for more than 20 years, hoping to find something special to do with it – Well, Katrine, here it is!!)~ Susan

Marie’s block number 2 – The Missing Groom complete!

doneI so wanted the groom to find a home on my Bird of Paradise quilt – and here he is. I like some things about him – his dark skin and his curly hair, his fancy pants of of course, his faithful Aussie by his side. But if I could change the color of many of the leaves on this block, I would. I can’t so I won’t – but I’m so distressed by them that of the six blocks I’ve completed so far this is my least favorite. Boo hoo.
