I looked for backings for 2 of the 3 flannel quilts yesterday but couldn't find any one piece large enough for either of them. I have found 2 pieces that don't look too bad together that I can use on one of the quilts but I couldn't make a decision on anything for the other one. I already have the backing chosen for the star flannel quilt. Last night I made 4 more blocks and I'm not too excited about this in batiks. I have seen the quilts with this block done in bright prints, with lots of polka dots and other fun fabrics and also one in all Kaffe fabrics. I think I might just stop at 9 batik blocks and make a small wallhanging or baby quilt and start another in other fabrics. Meanwhile I should start quilting the flannel quilts.
I saw a whole flock of robins in the front yard a few days ago. This one landed among the sparrows eating birdseed off the ground. I didn't think robins were seed eaters but he looked like he was eating with them. I suppose it could be bugs on the ground that he is after. We had snow flurries yesterday that covered the ground and then it warmed up a little and most of it melted. Spring is here!
