FREE PATTERN: Birdhouse Neighborhood

Hello Friends, I hope you are well.  Thank you for visiting again!  I thoroughly enjoyed reading your comments on my manual vs. no manual post!  You ladies are the greatest – and please know that I do appreciate you taking the time to comment.


This morning I woke up a little out of sorts, and had to lay back down.  Nothing to worry about as I had a most attentive nurse who showered me with quilts, get well soon notes, K’nex creations etc.  I was soon on my feet and working on my list for today…

Miss Baby:  Do you still have your chills?

Me:  No.  I am good as new now.

Miss Baby:  Do you think it’s because of my acts of kindness?

Me:  Oh, yes – absolutely!

Some of you might remember my Birds on Wire quilt from 2013.  It was designed using Benartex’s Let’s Tweet fabric line.

Let's Tweet Design 1c_65 x 71_high res

Benartex recently introduced the follow-up fabric line called Tweet As Can Be by Greta Lynn.  I always love Greta’s fabrics.  I designed 2 free-to-use designs featuring the fabrics from this new line.  I will share the first one today, Birdhouse Neighborhood.

You will notice I kept the “cross” blocks in Birdhouse Neighborhood… to keep a sense of continuation from Birds on a Wire.

  1. Don’t you just love what little ones come up with? My 8 yr old g/dau comes up with some doozies! Here latest “…”People with really big afros..they should check their hair for guns” good idea. And a suggestion, I started a list of some of her sayings 3 years ago hoping to do a scrap book some day for her.

  2. What a sweetie!! Miss Baby knows how to make a Mom feel better, her medicine is the best. Hope that you are continuing to feel well today.

    Another really cute quilt for my husband. He is a bird fancier from way back when. I better get to stitchin’ !

    Thanks for making us smile, Wendy, not only with your sweet quilts but also your sweet tales of Miss Baby!!

  3. Miss Baby’s ministrations reminded me of my own daughter when I was home from work with a fever and received “the best of nursing care”.
    The bird house quilt is delightful! I see Xs in one quilt and Os in the other–hugs and kisses!


  5. hmmmm. Maybe Missie Baby will grow up to be a doctor, or a PA. She has the magic touch.
    Glad you are feeling better.
