But what's a bird without a birdhouse? I have been upsizing several of my paper pieced birdhouses (I have 25+ that are included in my "Best of Quilter by Design" CD) and it's been fun to sew them in a larger size (10" height). Then I had a thought last night: Why not have a Birdhouse Quilt-a-Long? Well, WHY NOT? And that's what I'm going to do! A FREE paper pieced Birdhouse Block every month, sewn up in today's luscious fabrics. These are not teeny-tiny blocks (you can get those on my CD).
So, what do they look like? Here are pictures of the patterns:

Birdhouse Set #2
Here's a Sneak-Peek at the first block I super-sized (pattern coming September 14). I used some blenders from Blank Fabrics. Don't you love that swirly print?
From 3" x 6" to a larger 6" x 12" (all foundation pieced)

Thanks for stopping by. Don't forget to come back a few times this month, ESPECIALLY ON SEPTEMBER 14 when my DOTS ON DOTS blocks are revealed. In the meantime, remember to take time for sewing every day!
