Well hello, new quilt pattern!




Ok, you thought you were going to see Phoenix Flight, no? A bit of a wrinkle - a conversation with my aunt suggested a few problems with the pattern, which I need to resolve before it goes out. Hence, a bit of a detour.

Luckily for me, my uber-awesome cousin Priya stepped in (quite princess-like!), and sent me many photos of a quilt pattern she'd been testing for me. Birds of Paradise is made with a 13" block, very scrap-friendly and fat-quarter friendly, and makes up pretty quickly. She made a lap quilt size version. (My mom's working on her bed-size version even as we speak!)


And so, Birds of Paradise is up for sale, instead of Phoenix Flight. The best laid plans of mice and men...

 There's a couple of images of alternate colourways on the Craftsy listing, if you are having trouble imagining it in a different colourway. (Though, y'all are quilters, it's probably a bit unnecessary.)

As always, comments on the Craftsy listing would be most welcome, and I love comments here on the blog as well!

Now - to find a ruler, and to make a plan to sort out Phoenix Flight...
