After I finished my 'The Birds and the Butterflies' quilt I continued to gaze upon those border birds. They just catch my eye, and I can't stop staring. I think it's because they're just cute enough to love, but not so old fashioned that they feel dated.
As mentioned before, I used a tutorial from Block Lotto. It's pretty straight forward, and you can personalize details like the beak shape and leg arrangement.
I made 8 all together, and am going to use them as a border for the Pineapple Blocks I made the other week.
|I like the movement the leg angle gives this birdie.|
I'm following along with Meadow Mist Design's pattern design series, and I think I'm going to adapt this block into a baby quilt size. I've got a co-worker with twins on the way... maybe that is the motivation I need for a test quilt (or two!)
