We are halfway done with round 2 of our Quilt-Along, Blackbirds & Blossoms Oh-La-La! I hope you are having as much fun as we are with this project. In case you haven’t realized it yet, this quilt was designed to help embrace your own style and creativity. Use us as your starting point, then let your own ideas lead the way!

Haven’t started yet? It’s not too late! All the instructions are listed in the Patterns Page  Come on, join in the fun!

Side Panels 2(A) and 2(B) give you even more opportunity for you to “play”. Your fabric choices will help determine the flow of your final layout. If there are dark or busy fabrics, balance them by calmer or lighter fabrics as their neighbors. If they are too busy, try layering to add or remove interest. Remember, variety, variety, variety!

Panels 2(A) and 2(B) are designed with a bit more layers and blossoms. All supply lists, cutting instructions and how-to’s, can be found on the Side Panel Info Sheet and the panel 2(A) and 2(B) appliqué sheets. Let’s get started!

And that my friend, concludes round 2 of our Quilt-Along! Be sure to share photos with us on our SHWS Facebook page and I will pin them to our Quilt-Along Pinterest Board!

If you would like a few tips on raw edge appliqué, hop over to my website to read my rants on how I worked through my fear of this technique: Confessions of a Veteran Quilter.

Still not wanting to commit to the whole project? On Friday, I will be showing you a weekend project that I have been working on that uses all of the techniques in a simple wool appliqué project. It is so fun!!!!!

See you Friday!

  2. Hi Pati — thanks for the tips on your personal blog page. This is something I haven’t done, either. I won’t be playing along with this project (only because I’m immersed in other things!) but love the direction and look of it. And it’s something I can try on another project that’s waiting in the wings.
