Paper Pieced Pattern-A-Day Garden Party Blog Hop!

Hi and welcome to :)
today is my day in the garden party block hop.

When I think of gardens the first thing that comes into my mind is Birds, so I thought it was perfect to make a bird block.

This is Bluebird and it is 10″

But I’m also having a giveaway this week. I’m giving away 2 patterns of your choice from my Craftsy store. there will be 2 winners (randomly chosen) that will each get one pattern. one winner will be drawn from the comments on this post and the other from finished ‘Bluebird’ patterns posted in the garden party flickr group The winners will be announced (and contacted) a week from today on April 13th (I hope you’re not superstitious since it’s a Friday :P)
You can click the link below to see my craftsy patterns.

Happy sewing

  11. My husband and I love birds,we have 3 parrots a Blue and Gold MacCaw, Yellow Collar Maccaw and a Quaker parrot. I want to learn how to make blocks of them for a quilt for my husband. I love the bluebird and it will help me make one using everyday birds for my folks who watch birds from their house, and the other for him.

    • Thank you
      My grandfather has lots of birds. so I grew up around anything from Parrots to ducks, doves and chickens.

    What a pretty little bluebird! My Dad put a bluebird house up in our back yard a couple weeks ago, and that very day, a couple came to check it out. After spending a little time checking it out, they decided to set up housekeeping! :-) Now, every time I look out my kitchen window, I see them both perched on my shepherd hooks! What a happy thing! :-) Thank you for the chance to win!

    • Thank you.
      It must be lovely having bluebirds setting up house in your garden.
      I’ve actually never seen one in person since they don’t live here but they are lovely birds

  13. Your bluebird is perfect, cute as all your other patterns!

        I went to the bluebird and kept getting the flicker picture, never the pattern, suggestions? Thanks, Tori

      • You need to click the name beneath the picture for the pattern. Not the picture :)

        it just spins and won’t take me anywhere when I do that….?? What am I doing wrong?

      • Strange. It works for me. Here try this link

        • Victoria Hinton
        • April 19th, 2013

        Perhaps it’s not meant to be, I clicked, I copied and pasted and the little blue things spins and then goes blank…I will try on my sister’s computer later and see if that makes a difference. Thank you so much. Love your blocks! Tori

      • Thank you. I hope it will work on your sisters computer
        If not here is one more thing to try.

        You may not be able to open PDFs in your browser maybe you need to right click – save to computer before you can see it. :)

        • Victoria Hinton
        • April 19th, 2013

        It worked, I right clicke on the word, ‘bluebird’ and it opened ! The tricks of the trade, I tell ya! Thank you!

  16. Oh my! I see another addiction about to happen. I’m hooked on “Not all who wander are lost” and way behind on that one. Now a fabulous blue bird to make me take a peek at the Garden Party. I need a heavy dose of selfcontroll.

  17. My bee is having a bird block exchange and viola this pattern appears. Thank you for sending it just in time for me to begin my blocks.

    I love paper piecing. This block is pretty. Have to search my stash and see if I can duplicate the colors. Yours is perfect. Thank you
