80 Palm Blocks Done (see header) and cute bird visitor

I've finally finished all the blocks I'm going to make for this quilt. There may be some rearranging... the last that were made have a different look to them than the first, so I'm going to integrate them into the others. (I used more prints as the stems and it makes for a bubbly look that I like, but don't want them all at the bottom.)

A couple of closeups.

 And now some birdy pics. Last week we discovered this quail in our pecan tree (planted from a nut by my oldest son about 10 years ago).  The California Quail pappa looked around for quite a while... I hope he was considering our yard for his home. They are such cute birds. (He's on the bottom branch of the tree that isn't dead, just hasn't leafed out - and isn't mature enough to make nuts yet. I'm thinking our squirrels are crossing their claws waiting.)

So you can see we are having lots of excitement at our house.  Hope you are having fun with spring coming soon.
