IN FLIGHT- Block 4 - Curlew

The fourth block of the In Flight Quilt-Along is the Curlew.

Although I will admit that the majority of my favourite blocks of the quilt-along are the more complicated ones towards the end of the quilt-along, I have a big soft spot for this block.

I think its because I have fond memories of seeing curlews flying low over the fields during my childhood in Scotland. Other members of the family were the birdwatchers, but even I could recognise the sight and call of a curlew with no difficulty. My Mum died when I was a teenager, but I can still hear hear gently imitating their call with a low cur-lew, cur-lew cur-lew.

Or it could be because I took a real pleasure in the way that this block is constructed. Sometimes designs just fly onto the page and this was one of those occasions.

I hope you enjoy sewing the Curlew. There are a few long narrow pieces, but take your time, don't panic and you'll do fine!

You can find all the In Flight Patterns here in my Etsy Store.  You can also find all the In Flight patterns but especially the complete bundle the single Curlew pattern in my Payhip Store.

Don't forget that this month's linky is already open so you can add your block as soon as you have finished it.

In case you've forgotten, there are some wonderful prizes to be won at the end of this quilt-along.
