IN FLIGHT- Block 9 - Cormorant

When I was little, I remember my Mum, Dad and brother having big discussions as to whether the birds on the rocks holding their wings out to dry were Shags or Cormorants. I'm sure that my family could tell the difference, but to me shags and cormorants all looked the same!

Anyway, the next bird in the In Flight quilt-along is a Cormorant.

I must admit that once I sewed this bird, I was unhappy. I didn't like the ragged wing. I went back, altered the pattern and made a few adjustments to the wing. The above photo shows the first version of the wing, the diagram at the top shows the altered version. It may seem like a small change to you, but it makes me happy.

Sorry for not including a photo of my improved cormorant, but its late at night, I am already behind in my schedule and I don't have a photo of the improved block. If I get a chance, I will update this post tomorrow to include a photo.

The patterns have been updated in my stores and people should have received updates. If this has not happened, please let me know and I'll send you the updated pattern.

You can find the patterns in my Etsy store and my Payhip Store.

I will open the next linky party some time in the next few days so keep your eyes peeled for that. Don't forget to link your blocks up.

As always, I would like to say a huge thank you to my awesome sponsors.
