Happy Wednesday everyone! Today, I'm showing you my creation for the 52 Weeks of Twisted Traditional Blocks Quilt-Along hosted by Kim of Persimon Dreams. The quilt-along explores traditional blocks that have been "twisted" into a secondary image like a house or a bird (like mine).
I love traditional blocks and you can never go wrong with them! So, the Red Bird, Blue Skies quilt block is a twist from the Sickle quilt block.
While I don't think the block resembles a sickle at all, I did see a bird in flight. Just by changing one of the four-patch units and adding a little beak, it instantly became a bright little bird! I used the Somerset collection by Fig Tree Quilts for my bird and added some small black buttons for the eyes. Head on over to Kim's blog to see other fun blocks from the quilt along and download the Red Bird, Blue Skies quilt block pattern to make your own version. Have an amazing day quilters!
