The piecing of the quilt top is too easy to merit blogging, but very pleasurable to do as a palate-cleanser between more complicated projects. I frame each bird with Moda Grunge green, until I run out of it and use different greens from my stash.
Then I half-frame each block with strips of floral fabric on two sides, to create a staggered effect when tiled. Here is the messy quilt-math, for any who are interested in a peek into my process.
When all the birds are framed and situated, it's wide enough to be a twin topper. I kluge together the rest of the floral fabric with some black sateen stripes (leftover from the backing of my Acid Trip quilt), and get the top wider, so it can drape over the edges of a bed. Here's the finished quilt top, which now awaits quilting.
