I sent off two Hoffman Challenge pieces yesterday, the purple thing I posted last week, and this one with the parrots. (It isn't really crooked, as it looks here.) Strange, I don't have much feeling about either one, except that they're done and the decks are cleared. I have two because after I did the pink one, I was curious to see what would happen if I took another possible color scheme with the challenge fabric and went dark and somber instead of bright and tropical. That was an interesting experiment, and I'm glad I did it, even though my final feeling about them both is rather flat.

Sorry I missed this on the last read of your blog! I do like the birds! I am on the lookout for all kinds of birds because I have a bird themed crazyquilt percolating for my next really big project. Where did you get the birds for your blocks?

I think I like this one over your other one--will be interesting to see what the judges say.
