Love Birds

We are in the process of moving and I just spent most of the day out in our unheated garage packing and cleaning.  I. Am. Freezing.  I'm sitting on the couch in some cozy, warm sweats and nestled under a quilt and I just can not get warm.  Right now a fireplace and some hot chocolate sound heavenly!

Any who, I have finished the first block of my Ruby Bird Baby Quilt and I love it.  It is just so darn cute if I do say so myself.

I decided to start with the February block since, well, it's February and Valentine's Day is tomorrow.  It came together quite quickly and I really enjoyed the process.  I can't wait to finish this quilt, it's going to be so stinking cute, I may not be able to give it away!

I am also loving this fabric!  It's Ruby by Thimble Blossoms and the color pallet is just lovely.  I only have the charm pack I am using for this quilt, but I want more!

And look how great my Ruby Dresden Pouch fits into the mix!  It is perfect for holding my embroidery floss, needles, thread snips and glasses.

For the Modern Mini Challenge?

On another note, I pulled these fabrics for a possible mini quilt to enter into Jennifer's Modern Mini Challenge.  I have an idea all drawn out and I am quite excited about it, but I'm not sure if I will have time to finish it by the dead line.  I will try...I am making it either way!

Have a wonderful evening!


P.S.  I'm still cold!
