Darting Birds Quilt Blocks

Blocks by Bea, Michelle and Judy

Make Darting Birds Flying in a Blue Sky

This version of the Darting Birds quilt block was used for a past Quilting Forum swap. Change the fabrics in any way you like.

See a complete Darting Birds baby quilt pattern, but substitute the colors in this block pattern to make the quilt above.

Finished Darting Birds Quilt Block: 6" square

Darting Birds Fabric Choices

For each block, you'll need only two fabrics:

  1. One blue tone-on-tone print (or batik or hand dye) that is a believable SKY blue color for the background; this fabric should contain blues only.
  2. One black and white print for the bird's body; this fabric should contain no other colors -- black and white only

If you are making multiple blocks, each block should contain a unique combination of black and white and blue fabrics. Repeat fabrics as long as each combination is unique. (Those were swap guidelines... change as desired.)
