Charley Harper Goldfinch Quilt
So, about 4 years ago I saw a picture of the Charley Harper mosaic in Cincinnati. Which I still haven’t been to. But I saved a photo of it onto my computer called “MUSTMAKECHARLEYHARPERQUILT.jpg”

I love Charley Harper and was inspired to finally do it by the (organic!) Charley Harper fabric that was just released.

Better late than never! I have threatened to divorce Matt and marry quilts before, but this time, I’m almost serious. I liked it so much I took it on a walk.

This is on the trail along my house. I spend a lot of time here and for a few weeks have been thinking, OH, I need to finish my goldfinch quilt so I can take a picture of it in the yellow leaves.

And here is is by the OSU football stadium. Mostly because Matt’s office is next door he had to run to turn off some science machine so I went with him to make him hold up my quilt. Multi-tasking.

I love birds and I love Charley Harper and I love fabric and I love fall and going on walks. It’s all happening at the same time! That is all. Please humor me.

And I’m linking up to Sew Cute Tuesday and Fabric Tuesday because I’m pretty sure it’s Tuesday. And since it’s also a work in progress, I’ll link to the other Works in Progress!

    Hi Dana! I love your quilt! I don’t think I have seen an other quilt with big bird! It’s beautiful and I love the way you have made it with squares. Would be fantastic to have several quilts with different birds! I hope you find time! x Teje

    Feathers be flying for all the fun you have in this kwilt! Thanks for sharing the EQ7 mockup of your pattern on Saturday at the Sew in. Love all the locations of the photos and of course the “stadium” is my fav, as it is usually full if NUTS!

    I found your blog through Erica of Low Beam Studios. My daughter (age 8) and I just read through this entry and we both loved it – the goldfinch, Charley Harper, your fun walk with the quilt. 🙂
