Bird, birds, birds + Winners

I have been doing some pattern testing for Juliet @ Tartankiwi of late and decided to make a quilt of the tiles with some of the other patterns that she has made available.

Here are some of the two I have completed:

New Zealand Bird Blocks

The third block is the New Zealand Silver Eye (or Wax eye). The wax eye is a New Zealand native bird that is protected. It has a beautiful ring of white/silver around the eye and a head of bright yellow feathers.

The wax eye pattern by Juliet was a lot of fun to make. It had a great balance between joins of pieces and piecing. I might have gone a little too scrappy for this third block, but here is the finished test block at 10.5″.


One more picture with a more natural setting for the birds 😉WaxEye_Outside_PaperPieced

All three blocks together….New Zealand Bird Blocks

I am planning to also do Juliet’s:

Juliet’s patterns can be found on Craftsy. Linking up with Amanda Jean @ Crazy Mom Quilts for Finish it up Friday and with Kristy @ Quiet Play for her paper piecing party.

Now, finally the winners for last week giveaway are below. I am sending each winner and email to get your postal addresses. Congratulations and thank you to all who participated.
