michele and heather

i was inspired by your 'birdie' fabric. it had such a light lacy feel that i wanted to try to achieve that in the block. i also thought a lot of white would show off these fabrics. i got a couple of little birdies in my piece so i fussy cut those for two of the corners. i think it'll look pretty sashed in the green. i don't make a lot of blocks like this, so it was definitely out of my comfort zone.

loved making your block. i agree that 16.5 inches is a big one. i hope you don't mind the addition of the katie jump rope and the amy butler dots.

i don't know if i can keep up with you guys. i've never been in a bee where blocks get done so quickly and fabric gets sent out early! you guys are amazing.


  1. Lovely! All the white does make the block more airy and lacey. It's amazing that just the change of a color here or there can create an entirely different movement of these blocks. Thanks so much Jacquie.

  2. You did get a light and lacy look! Pretty blocks!
