Summer Sampler 2019 :: Bird's Eye Weave

Ya know, when I first saw the Summer Sampler announced, this block was one of the ones that I was really anxious to make. Designed by Heather/Quilt-achusetts, the Bird's Eye Weave block is a lesson in pairing stripes and curves. It was definitely one where basting the seams over the intersections to check placement was a lifesaver. That and using a Sewline Glue Stick (check it out!) on those curves made the block go together quite smoothly. It's one of my favorites so far. Funny thing is, those of us in the quiltalong keep saying that after every block we make. Definitely a sign of a great group of designers. And with the Bird's Eye, we're over halfway through the summer's sewing!

Week 10: Off Kilter [partial seams]
Week 9: Oasis [inset pieced circle]     Week 8: Fierce [tiny piecing]
Week 7: Sparkler [transparency]     Week 6: Cul de Sac [curves]
Week 5: Rope Twist [paper-piecing]     Week 4: Victorian Tile [nested seams]
Week 3: Curious Crossing [improvisational piecing]
 Week 2: Pixelations [half-square triangles]     Week 1: Spring Fever [precision piecing]


  1. I'm in awe of these curves ! The blocks look really challenging.

  2. The combination of curves and straight lines is great. Especially that they are not symmetrical. I can totally get why every new block is the best yet again :) xo Melanie
