Darting bird block

Ever wonder how quilt blocks get their names?

Well, some of them are pretty obvious! This is one of them - it's called "Darting Bird."

And it looks like a bird!

Check this out:

Cute, right?

Now take a peek of all three sizes together:

They really DO look like little birds, darting in different directions!

These are the 5 inch, 6.5 inch, and 8 inch blocks that will become part of my Summer Moon sampler quilt.

Now, on to the next block!

See you soon,


  1. I couldn’t see it at first, but when I see all three blocks a bit farther from the camera, then I definitely could see the darting birds. And even the one closer. Ha! I can hardly wait to see your quilt blocks all put together.

  2. I see the birds! Cool blocks. :) Pretty fabrics together, too.

  3. You are right, they doo look like birds, love the orange fabrics.

  4. LOL at first I didn't see the birds and then I saw them. They do look like birds darting around. Cute
