June Bird Quilt Swap

Meeting

Birds , birds, birds. We have many bird lovers in our group and the funky bird block at the retreat started a sort of bird quilting fever! Ruth suggested a bird quilt swap and Christy suggested making them a frame-able size. So here we are! The rules:

Design:

Any bird goes! Piece it, applique it, quilt it. paint it, embellish it; wherever your creative takes you.

Size:

Choose from one of three sizes that are the most common frame sizes: 4×6 inches, 5×7 inches, or 8×10 inches.

Finish:

Quilt it but don’t bind it as it’s intended for framing.  Sign and date the back of the quilt.

Due at the June Meeting.

Most important,  have fun!

Here is a photo of that first bird from retreat; if you are looking for inspiration, check Google or Pinterest for awesome bird quilts and blocks.
