Remember these pictures from March 2011?
The birds in the air block plays a prominent role in the novels set in the 1800s; stories of slaves escaping to the north. So in honor of Joanna's Birds in the air quilt from "The Runaway Quilt" I chose a border pieced together of 6" Birds in the air blocks.
The smaller triangles are made up of the scraps from all of the fabrics I used in the blocks while the larger ones are all made with the Apple Orchard dark-fabric from The WInding Ways Quilt collection
Still thinking of one day making a Birds in the Air quilt with this layout:
The border blocks are the only sneak-peeks of the LUS I gave on my blog while making the quilt, but I don't think anyone - except Annelies, my quilting buddy who was working on her own version of the quilt - had any idea what the blocks were going to be used for.
