Design a Quilt with Angela Huffman Using The Birds In the Air Quilt Block!

Some blocks bring the party and the Bird In the Air quilt block is no exception. This block has two secrets that I love. The first secret is that by simply rotating the block you’ll get striking looks and utterly different quilts. The second is that you can make this block four at a time! 

Let’s have a little fun and create a baby quilt together!

Grab a kit and play along! Layout your blocks as you choose and quilt along with Angela!

In a few weeks, we’ll announce the winning layout and I’ll stitch it up. *Voting on the layout has now closed!

As with all things quilty, there are a variety of ways you may find this block in the wild. We are going to work on a simple 6” finished Birds In The Air. Here’s the block:

  1. Tough choice but #2 is my choice. This white diamonds could all be different colors. You could also place the same colors diagonally and alternate colors. All kinds of options.
