As I take it easy to let my new knee heal, it seemed like a good time to show off an old quilt.
The Twilters! on Facebook are holding an exchange of Birds in the Air blocks in honor of Frances’ new book, so I was reminded of this.
I made this little quilt in 1993, inspired by Ruth McDowell’s Pattern on Pattern. It’s all hand pieced and quilted (from back when I did that!). It’s about 39″ square, made from 6″ blocks.
Some blocks are like we’re making, others are split down the middle, and then color creates the shifting layers of transparency. Gives me ideas for fancy ways to set our exchange blocks.
And, yes, you’ll be glad to know I did have help with these photos.
