A Paradise of Birds

I finally managed to get my act together and complete Month 1 of this Block of the Month.  I started this quilt last year – had all the birds stuck down – took it to the US when I had my “sabbatical” there – but never got around to completing it.  I did however finish it very quickly once I returned home.  I received lots of fabric advice from Mary Kelly (and had to listen to her this time!!) and here it is.

We have decided to do a “limited” block of the month as a lot of the fabric is now not available.  When I design and make my quilts I use fabric from my stash, some of which may be many years old – this is the only way I can do it.  So if you are interested please get in touch with Mary at Patch n Quilt.

Here are the blocks for Month 1.

I’ve also just completed my other latest quilt – made up of octagons and squares.  I’ll get a decent photo taken and post here soon.  Maybe I’ll ask for help with a name for it.
