Here is my block for Splendid Sampler 2. I enjoy sewing with friends, travelling around the world teaching and meeting new quilters. I named my block “Free as a Bird” because my quilting career has set me free – travelling to places that I never thought I’d visit. I only started travelling in the last five years and I’ve met many wonderful quilters and made many great new friends along the way. To download a free pattern for this block go to Splendid Sampler 2.
Here is something special that you can make with my block. I decided to make a needlecase using the bird block.
Recently I have been fascinated with “kantha stitching” and have done a lot of research on it. I decided to use some of that stitching for my needlecase cover.
The back of the needlecase cover includes circles and some more stitching.

I hope you enjoy making this needlecase and please send me photos.
