Just So Tweet Block #1

Tweet, Tweet. 

Who’s there?

New Birdhouse block!

This is a very simple block.  All you need are some triangles and rectangles.  I’m trying to use up my leftover blocks and scraps first, so I haven’t used any yardage yet. 

WHITE:  You will need one 4 inch square, cut into triangles.  Or if you have triangles already cut, use those instead. 

You will need two 2  x 3.5 inch strips, and two 3.5 x 4.5 inch rectangles.

BROWN:  I chose brown as it works for the post the birdhouse will be perched on.  You will need one 1 x 4.5 inch strip.

ROOF:  You will need one 6.5 inch triangle, your choice of color or print.

HOUSE:  I used a leftover triangle block that measures  3.5 inches squared.  Or you can piece together 2 triangles to make the square.

Here is how I put it together:

Goes together very easy and fast.  When finished, it measured at 6.5 inches by 10.5 inches, so it is more of a rectangle. 

I then chose some rick-a-rack and a button to finish the block.  There are several ways to do the birdhouse block, you can make it a two story house with extra triangles, or make it longer or wider.  Entirely up to you.  I will be making 3 more birdhouses and then add the extras on later.  I will post the remaining blocks tomorrow morning.   Have fun!

Chat later!  Remember the early bird gets the worm!

About cozyquilts

Hello and welcome to my website. My name is Donna. My hubby is retired and I am still working from home. I have twin daughters and am blessed with 4 grandchildren. We are owned by 4 cats that love to supervise and are very nosy. I have been quilting since 1996. In addition to making quilts for my family and friends, I also make charity quilts for Marjoree Mason Center and Valley Children's Hospital. Marjoree Mason Center is a local organization here that helps and supports battered and abused women and children get out of abusive relationships. Every Christmas I make several baby quilts for the women, along with a small stuffed animal. Valley Children's Hospital is a new venture for me that just started this year. Every month or so I drop off a couple of quilts along with a small toy, for the children. I use a lot of bright, fun fabrics to help cheer them up. I do special order quilts but please be advised in advance as I work full-time in addition to quilting, I only do a few during the year. Also, it may take up to 6 months to a year to completely finish a quilt as my sewing time is limited. I only do applique or patchwork and will incorporate machine embroidery into my patterns, when requested. Thank you for visiting and I hope to see you and friends again soon.
