Isn't this the cutest? I'm working on the Macaws pattern by Elizabeth Hartman from the current Quilty Box.

Here's a pic of how the finished project is going to look. I think it will be perfect to add a splash of tropical fun to my beach cottage.
Here's a close up look at the background fabric for this quilt.
Have you ever sewn an Elizabeth Hartman pattern? She has such a cute design style, but there are always a lot of little pieces to cut out. It's essential to sort and label each piece before you begin sewing so nothing gets mixed up.
A skinny strip of background fabric.
Small squares of background fabric.
And more cutting...
And labeling...and sorting...
I used every little zipper bag available!
This is the gray fabric that will be used for the bird's perches. I haven't sewn that section yet.
A collection of colorful bird feather fabrics. Aren't they pretty?
Trail Mix. She wants her cutting mat back. She enjoys napping under the warm light.
More fabric for bird feathers. I love the color and texture of these pieces.
Cutting the last piece! Time to sew.
I decided to sew all three Macaws at the same time. The pattern begins with the birds face. The black square becomes the eye.
I made a mistake right away by mixing up two of the fabrics. Can you see it? Unsewing - Ugh!
Three Macaw faces. I love it.
Next, the wings are sewn together in long strips. Aren't these fabrics just the cutest? Look at those tigers! The orange fabric with the curves looks like feathers to me.
Faces and wings sewn together.
Time to sew some tail feathers.
This is my progress to date. I hope I can finish this up soon. It's been fun.
