255: Christmas Birds…..

255: Christmas Birds…..

Recently, I was delighted to be asked by John aka Quilt Dad to do a review of an online pattern using Kate Spain’s  12 Days of Christmas line….How could I resist?  I could pick any free online pattern to review.  I asked John to suggest one, and it was so funny because he suggested this one which I had actually downloaded last year when I saw it referred to by John on his blog back when I first discovered his blog.  The review was to be featured in the a Fat Quarterly special Christmas edition.  Pick up your copy  here for my review of the pattern to make these little feathered friends, and many other designer’s reviews of free online patterns besides the patterns available in this special edition.

what follows below is a large series of pictures that I snapped while working on the project….while playing Christmas music…of course….


I need to do more embellishing on these sweet things, and Linda said I should hang them on a continuous string…so you will see them show up again I imagine.


  • Your birds came out SO GREAT! And I love all of these pictures of the whole flock! : )

  • I saw you mentioned on Heather’s blog and thought I’d stop by to say hello. I love your birds, especially the white one which is so christmassy. Nice to meet you, I’ve enjoyed my visit.
