Nero's Post II (2013-2015)

by Teje Karjalainen



… there was one bird …


… but it flew away … I missed the bird …


… I was looking for other birds … and found two on a wooden fence …


… and there came an other couple …


… story continues because I can’t stop making these …


I have many ideas for these fun and easy birds! Today I picked my favourite (can you guess which one?) and soon I’ll show you what it’s going to be. I shall make also simple tutorial for this patchwork bird.

Have you visited ‘Pattern Pile’? I was so happy to find that great site when they featured my ‘2 in 1 Make Up Bag’ tutorial! Thank you so much! What a fantastic place to find patterns and tutorials! This link takes you to quilt patterns!


There is very exiting ‘quilt along’ again! It’s called “{Big} City Girl QAL” and the blocks have themes from big cities! I wish I had time to make those great foundation pieced blocks! I have add the button on my sidelist, so we can follow this project. There is also flickr group where everyone who makes those blocks, can enter their photos.

If you like foundation piecing and applique, look this site ‘Free Quilt Patterns’!

This for now … one bird is waiting for me!


Happy weekend! sEW and sMILE!
