May Birds of a Feather Quilt Block: Celebrating the Vibrant Colors of the Chickadee with the Fox and Geese Pattern. Welcome to the captivating world of the Birds of a Feather Quilt Sampler! In this month’s installment, we’re thrilled to introduce you to the charming May block inspired by the vibrant colors of the Chickadee.
For this month’s block, we’ll be exploring the timeless Fox and Geese pattern. As we journey through this stunning sampler quilt, each month brings us a new bird color and bird-named quilt block. It’s an exciting adventure that celebrates the beauty and diversity of avian wonders.
So far, we’ve delighted in the Darting Birds of January, the delicate Birds Nest of February, the cheerful Ducks and Ducklings of March, and the enchanting Goose Tracks of April, inspired by the BlueJay, Hummingbird, Goldfinch, and Green Parakeet, respectively.
Now, it’s time to embrace the Chickadee’s colors and create a block that captures the essence of this delightful bird. With its vibrant hues and playful spirit, the Chickadee is sure to add a touch of cheer to our quilting journey.
Stay tuned as we guide you through the steps to create the May Birds of a Feather quilt block. Together, let’s celebrate the wonders of nature and the artistry of quilting.
