Ostrich chicks






You may remember back in October the pictures of my version of the Ostrich I'm setting for our Monday morning quilting group.

Although I'm steaming ahead (well I do have all the instructions) the ladies at the group pestered me last week for Part 4 - the bias applique round.

My response was 'you must at least bring in your work to see how you're getting on'. They're a funny lot - they wanted this Ostrich but only one of them has actually worked on it at the group. Maybe it takes a little too much concentration and they'd rather do something you don't have to think about too much while they're chatting. Never matter they brought in their works in progress this morning and I thought I'd snap them for your perusal.

Some are going for a medallion arrangement, others are making blocks for each part and will assemble them at the end.

It's funny how three of them have all quite independently gone for a blue colourway. Some haven't quite got to Part 3 which was squares or nine patch. Part 1 was a star or something of your own choice and Part 2 was circles or any section thereof.

Suffice to say all of them are being made to think along different lines to how they'd usually work which is never a bad thing.

is this the ostrich from Kim's Peach blog? I started that but couldn't find the link anymore - I really need to pull it out and see what I can do. Thanks for posting pictures - I need all the inspriation I can get.

Sounds like so much fun - I bet they will all be quite different when done.

The ostrich quilts are taking shape very nicely! I love the way everyone interprets the same theme so differently.

I think they're all doing GREAT work - very impressive! And I'm catching up on your posts - the long strips with flowers and vines is super - can't wait to see them sewn in wherever they're going to go. :)
