Birds from Flower Book for Swaps and GREAT Quilts

As many of you know I have had a block swap group for years and we are back to trading birds with each other. Flower Power (my book) has lots of fun ideas for birds and bugs. I think that the birds I made above are my most favorite and I am making a whole quilt of these for workshops for guilds and cruises. They are easy and fun and you don't know what the bird will looks like until she is done! The blocks below were made by girlfriends in the swap. I have to find out who made which one. There are a dozen of us making birds. This will make for more fun quilts!

To order this fun book go to
