Let’s turn Ugly fabric into beautiful birds.  Please bring an interesting (“ugly”) fat quarter to our meeting on January 18th in a brown bag.  Those who do will receive a mystery fat quarter in return.  You must use this fabric in your bird block.  You can piece, applique – hand or machine, paper piece a bird block. 


  • Use any background fabric you desire.

  • Block must be 12 ½” unfinished.  Go bigger if desired and we can trim down to 12 ½”.

  • You must use some of the “Ugly” fabric.

  • It must be a recognizable bird block. 

  • If your block is a appliqued block your bird must be appliqued by machine or hand to the background fabric.

  • Completed blocks will be due May 16th.

  • Blocks will be made into Charity Quilts.

  • The more blocks we receive, the more charity quilts can be made.

  • Prizes will be awarded, names will be randomly drawn from the blocks that are returned.

  • Blocks may be returned as completed to Coreen Burnett.
