My package of fabric for Katy’s (I’m a Ginger Monkey) block was the large birds you see above, and some wee birds. This left me some room to dig around in my own stash for additional fabrics for her block.
I initially made Katy’s initial block with the birds and the rain surrounded by the border of red. I liked how simple it was, but it kept saying, “pillow” to me every time I would take a gander it. Plus, I hadn’t managed to use the other little birds fabric I had received in it. I couldn’t help myself.
So finally I asked Katy if she would like a pillow. Turns out Katy’s little girl has a bird themed room, had picked out the fabric, and has a thing for pillows. Now it really screamed pillow. I added the Amy Bulter red moon dots and a wee border. You can see the wee bird fabric peeking out there in the corner.
I serged some muslin to the front and back panels, and installed an invisible zipper.
And then her block for the Bee:
It measures rather small, maybe 6×7. I thought it looked quite sweet that way.
I was extremely pleased with it as well. To boot it has been high 60s here in Seattle, so this Spring feeling block was so appropriate! I have quite loved others blocks for Katy and can’t wait to see what she is going to do.
P.S. I’ve had a lot of inquiry on the maker of the bird fabric. Katy got the info to me: Wendy Slotboom, Feathered Friends and she thinks it’s Timeless Treasures. The rain fabric is Alexander Henry “Rain Drop Stripe.”
