Birds and Berries

Happy with the colors in this block.  Its a design from the Blackbird ladies.  Aren't their designs wonderful? The weather this Spring is amazing, and the lupine flowers are in bloom now.  Everytime I see them I am reminded of our trip to Alaska.  I got the seeds there when we visited three years ago.  Currently reading Mr. Shivers which is turning out to be a very scary book.  Going to make chicken enchiladas tomorrow - yum!

I love their designs for their beautiful big shapes but I've yet to do one. Must put it on my list. Your block is gorgeous as usual.
