Birdie Stitches, Handwork Block of the Month



Birdie Stitches is a sweet 12-month block done by the lovely Corey Yoder.

When you join in, I will give or email you the handout that gives the directions for cutting & the layout plan once the 12 blocks are completed! 

Fabric requirements are a bundle of fat eighths & 2 yards of background, purchased at the store. I highly recommend the use of Shape Flex for the backing on the blocks before you start stitching. You will also get to use your stash. Yeah! That will help you to use up the fabric collected in the past, hopefully a win-win!
Patterns will be emailed or given out each month, and I strongly encourage you to make the blocks your own by adding to the design or in your use of threads.
I have several of the blocks done & on the design wall at the store if you would like a closer look. If you are out of the area, I will email more pictures when I email patterns!
I have used both Sulky 12 wt, 2 strands when stitching, and Wildflowers.  I'm only using 9-10 colors of thread-basically keeping a minimum palate.  I have all these spools available & for sale for $1.99.  If you would like the Sulky threads-let me know & I'll select the same colors I have used!
