Twilight top done; and an episode of "The Birds"

Twilight (72" x 72")

Despite needing to do some lesson planning and paper grading, I couldn't resist getting downstairs to put the final borders on the Twilight quilt. the lesson-planning and paper-grading commence. i was laying out the top for a final pic, I heard this RUKUS something awful outside!!!! It's been awhile since I've seen any Hitchcock episodes, and admittingly, I have never seen "The Birds"....but.....I'm kinda thinking this looks a bit like a scene from that movie!!! These red-winged blackbirds were EVERYWHERE!!! It was quite the spectical.

Happy Sunday

Those birds are crazy. I had to watch The Birds during a lock-in in junior high, sometimes I have flashbacks -- it was traumatic.
I love the borders on Twilight. So glad you were able to just throw that one together. Is it ready to go onto the frame? I'm guessing red thread and a pantograph.

Do you think that the finishing of the "twilight quilt" had anything to do with the appearance of the crazy birds !?!? LOL
Great job on the quilt! Putting those blocks on pointe really is cool!

I did not like the images that The Birds left me with either. UGH!! I hope they have left your house!

Love the top! It's awesome!
