Well, forty-one blackbirds and one bluejay baked in a pie. I finished the Blackbird top this morning. It’s from a pattern by Lorna McMahon at Sew fresh Quilts. Hers is called Blackbirds and features a red accent bird. I used blue for mine because we don’t have any red birds around here, plenty of Stellar’s Jays though. This was a fun quilt to put together, all straight line sewing and easy cutting. The tough thing was that there are 42 of the birdies. I made do with chain piecing and ironing and cutting. I’m a “process quilter” I enjoy the repetition and streamlining of the block making process. Plus having a great audio-book to listen to makes it go quickly.
This week I also completed two more Farmers Wife blocks, Nellie and Old Maid (which reminds me of two seahorses).
I am hoping to get to re-covering my arm chair this weekend, finishing El Camino and making two more Farmers Wife blocks. The blackbird quilt was a distraction, I really like it though! I was thinking of calling it “One in Every Crow(d)”.
Thanks for reading!
