Thank you! I just love birds and try to be inspired as I look over scraps and stash. Hard to believe it’s June already! Will need to decide soon if I want to make more than the 12 blocks.

My oh my. It is August! And the August block is inspired by the unique and pretty Flamingo. I found a couple of pink strips in an Island Batik jelly roll that seemed perfect for the block. Here is the link for the directions for this month:

I did two blocks again. Thanks for looking.

Is anyone else having issues downloading the monthly patterns? I signed up and haven’t figured out how to print out the monthly pattern. It frustrating. I just plan to use each months pic and figure out how to do the blocks. One of my month’s goals to catch up on this project and post pics as I go along. FYI, tomorrow stars the VQW.

These are some pretty blocks. I love that when you get through, you will have enough blocks for 2 quilts.

Hello! The September block is inspired by the Cinnamon Teal. I’m not sure when I’ll get the chance to make this month’s block. Too much going on. Here is the link:

https://patternsbyjen.blogspot.com/2020/09/

Happylab, I haven’t had any problems downloading. The monthly blog includes a link. When I click on it, it takes me to a payhip page where I enter my email address. Then a download screen appears. I click on download and it takes me to the instructions which I then print. It also sends me an email that I can use to access the instructions. Although it is a payhip, the block pattern is free at least for the current month. I haven’t tried to access later so I’m not sure when or if we would have to pay once the current month passes.

Barb in Louisiana, I’m glad I decided to try two different backgrounds. The blender was the original background I chose for the quilt. I decided at last minute to use some grunge grey I had on hand to make “practice” blocks first......then discovered I liked the grey background better. I plan to donate one quilt and keep the other.

Happylab, out of curiosity I went back to July link. It, as usual, took me to the payhip page; but now it costs $1 to download the pattern. Free must only be for current month.

I have finally finished the September block. The Cinnamon Teal was the inspiration for September. I had a bit of Island Batikís Cinnamon Dot fabric and used it for this months color.



October block was was released October 1. The Ruby-crowned Kinglet is this monthís bird. Iím looking through my stash to see if I have any olive green fabric to use. Here is link to October block.

Octoberís block is interesting, and I can see potential for different modifications .... like fussy cutting the center square or using two different fabrics for the 4 stars. I ended up using fabric I bought at JoAnnís to make masks. The colors seemed suitable for the ruby-crowned kinglet. And I liked how it would play with other colors in the quilt.

I had some problems matching the points when assembling the four stars into one block. Here are my two blocks. Thanks for looking.
