Pat K's Oct. Blackird Blocks

Here is my Delta Squadron ready to fly the coop! I really enjoyed making these birds. The block is simpler to construct than it looks. I love the black on sky blue (my favorite color) ;o)

New Bird Joining the Flock

At first I wasn't sure I would like this block, but after making a couple I can see where it will be one I will use again. I may make some more, but for now I will toss these two into the hat for the drawing.

Darting Birds Virtual Quilt

Janet created this month's virtual quilt, using her quilt design for this block and block photos from sneek peekers Béatrice, Judy (possumtownquilter) and Michelle (momof10).

For directions for the quilt, see Janet's article on the Quilting site on, Darting Birds Quilt.

Michelle (Momof11)'s Blocks for October

here they are...Only 4 this month. I have too many irons in the fire right now and no time to look for more blue fabric....who knows, maybe later in the month if I run across the fabric needed. This is one easy block! I think the Zebra bird is my favorite of these 4.

rho's October Blocks

Béatrice's Blocks

Béatrice (Beapatch) was the first sneek peeker to finish some blocks. These eight blocks got us off to a beautiful start.

Black & White Darting Birds in October

The Lotto Block for October is called Darting Birds. We'll be making it using Black & White for the "bird" and blues in sky tones for the back ground.

Janet has created the directions for us and published them on the Quilting site on here.

Judy (possumtownquilter) was one of the sneek peekers who made early blocks–this is hers. Isn't it great?
