Bird blocks


Hi friends! I think I found place for my ‘old’ birds … I think they could fly on the ‘Make My Day’ quilt … and made one new … modern bird …


What you see here …


I see bird, but perhpas you need good imagination to see that …


Looks now more like a rocket ready to fly to moon …



Often the First one I make, is the best … perhaps when I make something new, I take better care how to do it. I like mostly the first improvised bird I made. It’s the big, dark blue one …


Idea for these birds became from the birds visiting our pool …



They use to come every afternoon for a ‘swim’! They touch the water and fly around and again and again … if you swim then, you feel they might crash with your head!


These beauties just arrived from ‘Fluffy Sheep Quilting’, wonderful fabric shop run by Cindy WHO blogs here.

Thank you for stopping by and for your lovely comments! I wish you wonderful summer days!
