Birdie Blocks

I have been doing a "block of the month" project, along with a few friends. Last night, we had a little stitching party at my house to work on the March block.

The pattern is free online from this site: Little Miss Shabby

I am now caught up to date with my Jan, Feb, March blocks. I just took fabric from my stash. I have so many other things on the go, so I didn't want to buy more fabric for another new project... I told myself that if I could find enough suitable fabric in my bins then this project would be a "go!" If not, I would pass.

I don't know where the finished quilt will go. Depends on how large I finish it. The pattern calls for it to be 52X66 when complete. This link will give you an idea of the finished project: Birdie Stitches Layout.



Since the March block wasn't my absolute favourite.... I borrowed Kim's sketch with a cleaner rainbow, adding a shamrock, and using the January birdie (because he's fluffier!). Thanks, Kim! I added the little shamrock to his chest and did 3 lines of stem stitching to pull in more green.

Your blocks are looking so cute! I like how you changed the march one.

Thanks Cindy! The March block is mainly Kim's design. I loved her idea of using the January birdie because he is the best shaped bird so far! This project is more fun than I thought it would be :)
