What fun! I love the placement of that cute bird.How about a black inner border to frame (contain) the blocks, then a wider green(?) band and finished off with a black binding?
Oh! I like that a lot. I will have to be on the lookout for a good matching green. It's sort of a difficult color because it's almost lime-y but like an overripe lime with a touch of brown to it rather than a bright lime green. It'd definitely tie it together though =)
Oh, I see you used the Authentic line of fabrics! I love them...actually I love anything with text! Your quilt is lovely...can't wait to see it finished.
I love fabric with words! I brought home lots from my trip to Japan last year. Your extra large letters really make it pop.
