Ostriches!

That's a weird title for a quilt blog post!  The boys are done, and I'm moving on to a couple of floral CWBQ blocks from here. 

After looking at actual ostrich coloring on the internet, I decided to make two colorful males instead of one beautiful male and one drab female.  Let's face it ladies, we're drab.  No, that can't be true!!  I was shocked to find coral coloring on these birds, but ever so glad to be able to make them colorful on the quilt.  The two reproduction black fabrics that I used for the bodies didn't show up very well in this photo, but they are gorgeous...my favorite fabrics in the block.  I changed their little diva feet, as well.

I am now preparing leaves for block #6, instead of other things I should be working on...like Christmas gifts, an ornament for exchange, and baby quilts.  I need more hours in the day!!

In stitches,
Teresa  :o)

Thanks for stopping by the quilt cave...I love your feedback! I am sorry that I am no longer able to accept comments from "Anonymous" readers...it leaves the door open for too many spammers!
