Design Wall Monday - January 17, 2022

Good Morning Quilters!  This week I pulled out an old UFO and it is now a WIP!  It is the quilt "Birds of a Feather" by Blackbird Designs.  I looked back on my blog and the last time I blogged about it was in 2013.  (Here)  After working on it this week, it only needs a few more blocks before I can sew all of the blocks together.  The small checkerboard blocks are not sewn together yet, and you can see a few blank spots.  Here is the progress picture from the Design Wall:


This week I finished the leaves and berries on the block with the red bird, near the bottom left.  I also pieced the block below, which goes in the bottom left corner.  I have to make one more of this block to go at the top right.



Then I have to make one more "bird" from four drunkard's path blocks, as there are three in the quilt, and I only have two.  But that should be easy, since I made so many drunkard's path blocks for a quilt I finished last year.




The last block to finish is another applique one - the blank spot at the top of the quilt.  I think it has one or two birds on it, and some flowers.  I haven't studied the directions for it yet.  But I am definitely seeing the finish line with this WIP.  I will work on it again this week, and see how far I get.

  15. Great job pulling out a UFO - I pulled out my oldest last week and made a back for it and then loaded the back on my long arm - now to cut a batting and start the quilting. This one is almost as old as my high-school daughter and boy, will I be glad to finish it!
