New Bird Blocks Design Complete

TUESDAY GREETINGS EVERYONE - Just arriving home from a long day at work. I'm headed off to North Adams, MA tomorrow to meet with a client so I'll be gone most of the day. I have a few things to finish up tonight, but I wanted to show you these blocks I completed this morning before leaving. I didn't follow a diagram for these, most of my blocks are cut and sew as you go. I am satisfied with them for the most part. I altered what I ended with last night by sewing HSTs on opposite corners of the blocks.

I really like the way the red corner fabric looks on the last border. I will take my sketch pad along with me to figure out the placement. I think the blocks will create an interesting pattern if sewn together without sashing.




I didn't forget about your giveaway post Kristie! My son has been spending afternoons with his aunt to try and give my wife a break with the baby. I promised him he could help me pull everything out of the box. He hasn't come home yet so if he doesn't go to bed early we can take some photos.

And lastly, a special thanks to everyone who checked in and commented recently. Your encouragement really does feed my creativity. The quilting and blogging community is really a great bunch!

  4. I like the way this combines the red triangles with the blocks, seems to take up the red birds.

  5. Very striking. I think it's going to make a terrific secondary pattern. It's best to fiddle and be satisfied!
