There were 2 blocks needed to be made for my Cottage Quilting Bee. This one is for Katie. I’ve never met her but from our internet “interaction” she seems really cool and she likes to run. The task was to make her these blocks of 2.5″ individual squares. I got a bag of green fabrics and this is what they amounted to. It was a lesson in precision as you couldn’t schlep ’em together. Seam allowances and lining them up were key here. It was fun playing with the various prints.
This one is for Katy and she’s a talented and easy going lady from UK. She sent the bird fabric in the middle of the square and gave us free reign (see where I get the easy going from?). I added something from my stash (pink one is Joel Dewberry) and this is the result. I took a picture of the birdhouse because I thought it was appropriate and it’s where I got the inspiration for the color scheme.
But wait, there’s more!!!She did say “free reign”. So I made this one. I’ll call this the official block. Of course she can choose whichever.
