Your birds are sew adorable, Teen. And you are sew quick in making them. Looking forward to seeing pieced blocks.

Pretty birds Teen. You seem to use your time wisely. Even in the midst of moving. But, I know you can't wait to get to your machine.

Thank you, ladies! And, Judith, you are so right! I do have my travel machine available but my big machine is packed. If time, I may set it up...probably not but I know it's there. Lol...

Thank you, Anael!

The Flutterby quilt from the book is cool looking but that is not on my list...yet...lol.. After Happy Birds, I'm going to probably work on a non-Kingwell pattern, a baby quilt, and a QOV. Then maybe GW.

I really like the Kingwell patterns. But, I doubt my ability to make the blocks come out the right size with templates. I really like when the patterns give the finished block sizes. I have the book to make the Happy Flower Quilt and the book to make Splendid I quilt blocks. I think both of them have blocks that you use templates. I think I will practice with them before purchasing any Kingwell patterns.

This is what I'm working on right now. A Valentine Wall Hanging. The pattern is out of the book I Love Churn Dashes. (Martingale Publication) The pattern is called, Little Boy Blue by Tonya Alexander. It still needs one more final round Churn Dash. And, then it will be ready to quilt.



And, I have a table topper all ready and layered to quilt using knock off Wonderland Fabrics. I love Rabbits. I found a free pattern on Pinterest making a lap quilt. Am thinking of doing that with my Wonderland Fabrics as well.

Beautiful Judith, both topper and wall hanging!!

I agree with you, I find the Kingwell patterns rather confusing. Besides, you need to sew a scant 1/4" seam otherwise all blocks will come out too small.
I made my own templates for some of the blocks. For Bakers Dozen I purchased them. They're expensive though as are her patterns!
You could try Tempters, do you know those? Templates to make just one block and with that one block you can make whatever you want.

I wonder...Judith your valentine quilt got me thinking...

okay I have 27 yards of solid fabrics in 1/4 yard increments...that's 108 different cuts...(don't ask!). I have 3 1/3 yards of this gray and white fabric. I would like to make a graphic style quilt with the solids using the gray/white as background fabric. The solids range from light pastels to deeper colors...not too many primary hues. I'm thinking 60 x 75-80" I've toyed with HST's making large flying geese or star patterns. I'm thinking using a at the most 10 of the solid fabrics. Any ideas for this quilt or any additional use of the solids? [ATTACH=CONFIG]606920[/ATTACH]
