Yarn Dyed Fabric Applique - "Yellow Bird"

With the nine central blocks complete, this quilt is starting to take shape.  My original plan was to use sashing between the blocks and I had picked out the fabric for these strips, but when the time came to put the blocks and sashing together the fabric and sashing added nothing to the quilt centre .... so after much deliberation I decided to abandon the sashing and just join the blocks together.  I've decided to call it the "Yellow Bird Quilt" after stitching the bird block.  Here is how it looks so far .................

I am working on the border design now ... it is 12 inches wide and will feature a basket and birds as well as repeating the leaves and flowers from the blocks... so plenty of work to do!!!
