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?!
