Spring has sprung - There are "Birds in the Air"

The Birds in the Air quilt block has endless possibilities. At first glance it seems ... nice ... but nothing special. Well, that is where you are wrong.

"Birds in the Air" quilt block
Using 90 degree rotations of the blocks, you can achieve all sorts of quilt layouts. Adding sashing to your quilt will provide additional interest. This four patch quilt block is made entirely of half square triangles, using two different sizes of those triangles. By experimenting with colour placement of the triangles ... well ... the sky is the limit of how your quilt can differ from another quilter's project.

Today's "Ah Ha" Moment

  • "Did you ever see an unhappy horse? Did you ever see a bird that had the blues? One reason why birds and horses are not unhappy is because they are not trying to impress other birds and horses."
    ~ Dale Carnegie
