IN FLIGHT- Block 1- Swan

After months of teasing, I'm really excited to finally release the first block of the In Flight Quilt-Along.

As promised, you have two options. You can buy the complete pattern bundle or you can buy the patterns one at a time.

The first block of the In Flight Quilt-Along is a swan. I kept this design simple and elegant, so as to ease you all into the quilt-along.

To me the simplicity of this design balances some of the more complicated designs that will appear later in the quilt-along.

To make this block you will need less than a Fat Quarter of background fabric and less than a fat eighth of fabric for the bird.

I am using Oakshottcottons for the birds of my quilt. The background is yarn dyed Essex linen.
For some blocks I use a single colour of Oakshott cotton, for others I will use a mixture of different tones to accentuate the feathers.

I kept this block simple with a single colourway.

 For more details about the In Flight quilt-along see the introductory post and this overview of all the posts.

Don't forget to come back and join in the linky party.


  1. Love the simple simplicity and grace of this one - hope people go mad for all this goodness!

  2. Bought and downloaded! Excited for this quilt!!!

  3. Oh, just looked at the pattern and I've got so many ideas now! I'm thinking Doe by Carolyn Friedlander or Liberty (I've got lots stashed away waiting for the right project) ~ this is going to be so so fab!

  4. This is such a gorgeous quilt Juliet!! I like what the last lady mentioned too! and liberty version would be amazing as well!!

  5. What a fun project! Couldn't wait and bought the first block! Will probably buy the set next! It is so beautiful and easy to make. You made me research washi tape..sounds better than the melted tape I usually end up with when I forget it is there, Thank you for that tip.

  6. Yippie, just bought the bundle!!!!

  7. bought the bundle and made the first block tonight - I have never paper pieced before - I love it !! so happy!

  8. I have my pattern now and I hope to keep up with your QAL but no promises. I so love these birds!
