Little Quilty Things

I have been working at a lot of little quilty things lately, test blocks and whatnot. Some of the test blocks I have turned into potholders, and some of them will become gifts at Christmas (Except the insanely bright bird potholder. That I like so much I am keeping it.). Others I am filing away in a box labeled "quilt blocks" and maybe someday I'll find something to do with them. There are more than are shown here.

I've been finding a lot of free nifty quilt patterns online. The brown birdy came from online, as well as the house block and the crow (although it was labeled as a bluebird and shown in bright spring colors). Many of the free patterns available aren't very "google-able", however. I looked for days for an applique bird block, and stumbled across this one quite by accident.

These beautiful things you create really make me wish I had the desire and patience to sew. Alas, I don't. I will just have to admire the talents of those I know who do know how to do a great job.

Thank you for the lovely comment, and yea, I got some things I don't know what to do with.

I do love the insanely bright bird potholder. I really want run off with it (and I'd prob keep it for myself too)
