Quilt in Progress and a New Visitor

While this is supposed to be a tree skirt, I think I may just use it as a table topper.  It will finish around 36 inches so I think that would be a nice size for the table.  I used the Moda Seasonal Little Gatherings 5 inch squares that I got at Endless Mountains Quiltworks.  When I opened the packets, I was surprised by the variety of colors present.  Black, several browns and tans, dark reds, lighter reds, purple, greens and oranges.  It's half sewn together.  I decided to only agonize about placement for less than one day.  

Apparently my porch is prime nesting territory this year.  In addition to the phoebe shown yesterday, now there is a mourning dove.  Usually they nest in the spruce trees, of which I have many.  It's always interesting to look out the sewing room window!

That's it for tonight.  I may have a full finish to share tomorrow!

Blissful hugs,
