yes and yes....lot's of projects in pizza boxes....unused pizza boxes....with labels on the front of them......but who doesn't love good strawberries and little birdies.......

love this, just too cute.....Thanks for sharing, gloria g. Wellborn, FL


I love your little bird but did you realize the yellow HST for the wing is on the wrong position? It looks really complicated I think this pattern would confuse me to no end.
It's great that you can reuse your fabrics and that's the reason we quilters have a stash;-)


Good morning. Just a quick note to let you know how much I enjoying reading your blog!


How great is that when you can use the fabric from an old unfinished (and perhaps "never to be finished") project on something new. These birds are going to be adorable!

This is a funny story!! And the beak! How cute is that?? Leave the block as it is, cuz no-one will notice the backwards HST. I got yesterday's BH done as well as week 9, so I've made a little ground in that.

Love the birdies.

Debbie R.

Very nice birdies! And three cheers for a well-stocked stash!

I have bought this pattern, as well. I plan on using several collections of Fig Tree fabrics. I think they will work well in this. Keep us up to date on your progress. It keeps us all inspired.

Tweezers anyone for the beak blocks?? Pattern Basket designs great quilts. I have a few. I also keep every scrap of Fig Tree fabric, even back when she designed fabric with another designer. I also have a kit I have not used yet. I won't be making birds, but yours are sure to be darling and Eva will love it!


That's a cute block! I know Eva will love the quilt! It does look fussy...but you do fussy well!!


That's adorable quilt block and will make a very sweet quilt. Yes, shopping at home is the best place to start and repurposing some of those fabric collections that went with projects that aren't part of the plan anymore.


That is a darling quilt block! How great to shop at home. I don't buy many kits but the ones from Fat Quarter Shop are generous with the fabric. I have a lot of leftovers from a 2009 BOM--a UFO I do want to finish this year! Have fun with your Fig Tree fabrics 😊


Cute block. I made the 2011 fat quarter shop mystery block quilt. The blocks for that quilt were also very complicated. I gave the finished quilt to my mom, she loved it. I can't wait to see your finished bird quilt.

The birds are just adorable. Good use of excess fabric!



What a pretty block and great idea to use up the BOM fabric! I've found that has happened a couple times where I love the fabric but the pattern not so much 😂 Can't wait to see your progress on this one 😉

That's a pretty birdie!
I too stalled on that 2011 BOM until I saw the finished quilts on the internet. I've finished all the blocks but haven't put the top together yet. In my mind, it will be a quilt for my first granddaughter if such person ever exists.
