Holiday for the Birds Sew Along- Block #7

Join our current sew along!  Holiday for the Birds offers 8 different bird themed quilt blocks which are assembled with simple pieced blocks.  Today I am releasing block #7- MUG! For the current free block, GO HERE!

The finished quilt top measures 48″ x 58″.  Collect each free block as they are released and create a beautiful cherished holiday quilt!

Each block is a work of art on its own and can not only be featured in a quilt, but as pillows, table toppers and much more! For the current free block, GO HERE!

Each month, I will be walking you through this quilt top step-by-step with tips, and thorough instructions and free templates. Holiday for the Birds was created with traditional applique, with touches of embroidery for embellishments. Of course, it can easily be done in fused applique or even with blended wool felt!

So how does this work?

Starting August 1, 2019, blocks will be offered on the first of the month, with the last being offered on March 3, 2020.  Each block will be available free to all Sitcom Readers until the end of that month. For the current free block, GO HERE!
