I have been looking at this quilt and have been putting off making it for a number of years now. The problem is the instructions are pretty generic and I don't see any way to assemble this without piecing it together by hand. So I have cobbled together a procedure that I hope is going to work. First, the little triangles are paper pieced. Then I put together a template on a piece of scrap canvas that was used to build my ironing table. Each piece of the block is cut, clipped and the edges ironed over like my birds have been built. Then I glue the pieces together on the canvas template and sew them using a decorative top stitch.
And you know I absolutely cannot follow instructions... So my quilt is not set on point, is not oval shaped and there is no appliqué on it. Also, I have changed those four sort of triangular pieces in the center of the template so that there is a secondary pattern of blocks behind the circles. Because what this quilt needs is to be MORE complicated. (Yeah, right!)
