Happy Mothers Day!

I sat on the deck and finished my center block for Lori of Humble Quilts newest quilt along. here

The applique is intended to be done by machine but I am always unhappy when I machine sew quilt applique and so I somewhat messily hand stitched this panel.

Not my best effort here, I admit, though I even cut out a tiny bulls eye dot for the birdie's eye!

I find it hard to sew at night even with a bright halogen work light. Sitting on the beach in the sun is much nicer!

The quiltalong is by Lori along with another blogger: Randy of Barrister's Block. She calls it a Sow Along. I am new to her site and so I don't know why she calls it ''sow'' instead of sew...but here is the link to her version. here You can see I was inspired by her brights-on-red version.

Hope everyone's day is lovely...
