Birds in the Air - In Color

Last week I played around with some layouts for my Crossroads blocks and this week I did the same with Birds in the Air blocks.

One Chevron layout (I will most certainly have one of these at the end of the year!):
Three Diamond layouts:
 I find it interesting how moving the white space totally alters the top!
Here I just did a quick mix of the colors... I would probably switch the middle blocks to alternate pink/purple with orange/green.
It's been a great month of green and I'm looking forward to a new color next week!

  1. It is clever what you can do with the same block! I especially like the chevron layout - might have to have a go at that one!

  14. Wow! Lots of ideas for your blocks. I love the first one although the second would be great for some fancy hand quilting motifs. So fun to watch this one grow each month.
