Finishing up Katy’s Block reminded me once again of my fondness for all the bird fabric that has been popping up. I had showcased for Sunday Stash some of the bird fabric I have in my stash, and was happy to add a bird scrap from Katy’s leftover stash to my pile of birds.
I finally sat down and put together the first block. I like its outcome. The purple bird fabric were scraps from a friend that passes them on, and most of the other scraps are from swaps, little of my own really.
I was thinking this will be my Nothing But Scraps Quilt. We’ll see if I can stick to it. I had cut a bunch of birds out originally for another project that never was fruitful, so sitting in my scrap bin I would think qualifies them as scraps. I do like to dive into my stash though, so it might not work out for me.
I was ambitious to think I would get to another over the weekend, but worked on a wedding quilt instead. I am in communication with another quilter that has the same love of bird fabric and we are on for a swap! Perhaps more this week.
