April Rainbow catch-up!!

 The birds, the birds!  They are gathering!!  Some of you may remember that old Alfred Hitchcock classic, "The Birds", and remember that classic line.  

Here is where I am on my birdie quilt.  Yellow was the color for April, and even though I cut out all the blocks very early in the month, I did absolutely nothing on them until the end of the month...silly girl!  I am going to keep on making blocks, of the color selected of the month by Angela, until I have a big enough quilt to cover a person.


Hey, you just must go see Angela's blog HERE!   Check all the rainbow quilts of all sorts...great fun!

 My yellow birdies...silly little yellow babies!!
 And here is this quilt, too, with the addition of the yellow blocks.  Same goes...gonna make blocks until it is big enough to be useful as a quilt, LOL!
 Yellow blocks of the month.
And at last, the heartie blocks, in yellow, for this month.






I am fascinated by the rainbow quilts, because they give me an opportunity to use my sorted-into-colors scraps, and hey, that is the goal, right?  To use things up?

I have to admit I am having string and plaids withdrawal, though...




Have a super day, everyone!!!

Unlike the movie "The Birds", yours are not scary, just delightful.

Love your bird blocks! Dont worry I am behind by two colours now, sometimes life gets in the way of sewing....and you just wait until that colour comes up again next year!

The Birds was a fun movie! I doubt it would be a best seller today though.

All of your yellow blocks are fabulous.

Kyle said...

Your yellow additions are bright and so cheerful. I still think of that movie anytime I see a large flock of birds gathering!🐤🐤🐤🐤🐤

Mimi said...

I love birds and your's especially. Would you please share the pattern that you are using? Thank you.

Mimi, I made up my own pattern, but the bird body is three inch finished and it is just a matter of adding bit from there.

This one is available at this link, but I changed mine up, added funny legs, etc.

Never saw The Birds movie, but I love your birdies. Nothing scary there! Just smiles and happiness in that flock of rainbow birds! Such a fun quilt!
Oh, just love each of your rainbow projects, Julie. You just can't go wrong with a rainbow of color!

Barb said...

what a fabulous flock of birds!

Ruth said...

I like the different angled legs on your birds! I'm not making any birds, but perhaps one day I will. I'd probably add some tufts of feathers on some heads, make some tail feathers stand up instead of down..you know, change things around a bit. Your bird quilt will be marvelous!

I am SO loving this bird quilt! So cute and colorful, and yes, I do remember the Hitchcock movie--it's one of my favorites! This quilt would be threatening if they were all black, but the colors just make it whimsical!
