Give it Any Personality with Color and Fabric Choices!
Plump little birds flock together in this darling quilt. It’s a fun project that can look modern or vintage depending on your chosen fabrics.
The design shines in bright colors and is just as wonderful in softer hues. It’s great in any fabric style and color combination.
The blocks can be used in other projects as well. They are oblong rather than square but can be squared off by adding borders. The following example from Simple Stitches shows how that looks.
It’s easy to imagine blocks strung together to make a runner, one block finished into a pillow cover, and a few blocks made into a baby or wall quilt. The following example of a wall hanging is from Old Town Quilt Shop.
There are so many beautiful examples of this quilt that it’s hard to pick just a few to show how it looks in various palettes and fabric styles. Here are some of our favorites. You’ll find many more examples here and here.

We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
