Can you make out the beak of the baby bird just peeking out from the nest? I was so excited that I managed to take a photo while the mama bird was away. On the subject of the teacup quilt--I had some luck with that today. My mother-in-law used to have a saying "dumb luck" when something turned up to unexpectedly get you out of a predicament. I started to make this quilt with enthusiasm and not much in the way of planning. I knew that I had a piece of tea-dye in the closet, but I didn't measure it. I figured that I could use any light backgrounds on the teacups. But when I started with the tea-dye, I decided that I really liked it, and besides, there is no right or wrong side to the fabric. That helps when you are making right and left side pieces. So, I continued to cut into the fabric like there was no tomorrow. However, when I came to the spot where I needed to cut pieces for the last 10 blocks, I suddenly saw that I was coming to the end of the fabric--and I finished with 3 inches to spare! So la-de-da!
