Each month in 2018, I will feature a new block of the month pattern using different quilting and sewing methods. There is something here for every skill level! This month, our block is a traditional block with a twist of color and a crazy bird applique.

After the success of the Words to Live By Series last year, I wanted to come up with something just as fun this year.

I wanted to put together something colorful and bright. This month, I struggled with a different pattern that looked entirely different than this one, and then over night, I changed my whole plan. And Bird Brained was born!
Bird Brained Table Topper
Create the table topper and give yourself some practice on applique. This bright topper not only takes very little time to put together, but will add a bright spot to your summer table. The finished Table Topper measures 12″ x 12″ and works well as a mug mat, placemat, trivet, wall hanging or small topper.
Bird Brained Pillow!
…And a Bird Brained Quilt!
The Bird Brained Lap Quilt measures 46″ x 60″. The individual block sizes are 12″ x 12″ and you make 12 blocks. Six will be appliqued with the bird pattern and six of them will not. Stay with this size, or take on a challenge and add more blocks to create a queen or king sized quilt!
