I entered another swap at Mary Lou Weidman’s blog/chatroom. This time we are making thirteen birds each, sending them all to California, and getting one from each of thirteen other birdie makers. The birds were to be made on a black background from jello colors (bright and cheery!). Mary Lou sent us some possible patterns.
I love the birds from the free-piecing study by Sarah and Molly. So I made a few of those. I also love the free form chickens spotted at Cactus Needle and several different places. So I made birds similar to those (although less chicken-y!). When I was piecing them individually, it was more fun but it took more time.
Then I got on a roll and made a bunch all the same (it won’t matter because they will be in different quilts, anyway). I kinda like them! I can’t wait to see everyone else’s.
I haven’t managed to make the sock quilt yet but the blocks are quite a variety!
I am linking up to Sarah's Can I Get a Whoop Whoop Party and Sew Many Ways So Darn Crafty. Go over and see what else people have been making.
