Blue Birds and Red

I know, so not me, right? But that's the joy of a round robin in a mostly traditional guild. As a result, I'm using up some fabrics in my stash that I never thought would see the light of day, and I'm pushed beyond my comfort zone.

The blue birds were my first round. We were assigned applique for this one. I did think cherries, as per the suggestion of another participant, but went with the birds. I hope she doesn't mind the blue.

This second one was pretty simple as the instructions were for a plain border. Nothing more. There was a touch of red in the plaid background for the snowman, so it was an easy choice out of my stash.

Just a little fun.

It is fun to do something a little different from time to time :)
