IN FLIGHT- Block 8- Kestrel
I am really glad that I made the 24 inch version of this block, I think it really works as a big block. The large size changed the pattern from being one that I quite like to one of my favourites. We are now at the part of the quilt-along that excites me. I guess it won't surprise anyone to hear that I love the complex blocks and the many ways that they can be interpreted.
The variety of shades of red on the feathers of my kestrel really work well for the design. I love how the Subtly differing shades of Oakshott cotton add something to the block.
