Dove in the Window – June BOM

Carol Doak’s Block of the Month for June is one of my favorite blocks:  Dove in the Window. We have several mourning doves that visit our backyard.  I love the cooing calls they make and how funny and clumsily they try to land on the bird feeder; spilling more seed than they eat.  Here is my Dove in the Window:

Working on the block was just pure pleasure – like eating chocolate!  I love the fabric. I love the pattern and how easily it went together. I love how in a matter of a couple of hours, I’m all caught up on this project!

I’ve grown so enamored with  paper piecing that I’m ready to start on… Desert Sky by Judy Neimeyer.

I bought this pattern last fall and found most of the Batiks at the Houston Quilt Show.  I kept thinking that as soon as I caught up with all the baby quilts, Civil War quilt (at the quilters), Just Takes 2 project, BOMs, quilt guild cookbook (yes, I am chairperson of that little project) and have organized all my fabric (LOL), that I would start on the Desert Sky quilt.  Well, phooey, I’ll never catch up so I might as well work on it anyway!  Right?!

Later, y’all!
