This block is the first of the three extra blocks which were added to the quilt-along at a later date. It has a kind of simplicity to it and I really love the way that it turned out.
The pattern is provided in two sizes- 12 inch and 24 inch, but I mixed things up and sewed my thrush as an 18 inch block. I love the way that this extra size of block adds interest to the layout and strengthens the impression of a chaotic flock of birds milling around.
my Etsy Store and my Payhip store. It is available at a reduced price for the first two weeks.
If you prefer, you can buy the three extra blocks as a bundle from my Etsy store or my Payhip store.
The winner of the sixth linky is Cheryl Emoto.
This was the last of the progress linky parties. The next one is for finished items. Although there are still two blocks to go, I will open the final linky next week and whenever you finish an in flight project, you can add it.
