Paddlin by Jennifer Ofenstein

And here we are: You’ll find Paddlin’ on page 20 of Vol. 13!

These birds were inspired by a design I created some years ago, but never published. It wasn’t quite right, but I loved the birds! If you look closely, you’ll see the “Momma” bird from Paddlin’ is sitting on the ground, while the “babies” are up on the line.

Just for fun, I put together a small quilt idea using four blocks,, two of which are in mirror image. I just love the wreath-inside-a-window effect!

Just like all of my patterns, Paddlin’ was designed in EQ7.

    Good morning… I have a feeling that while I’m at the cabin in MN this block will get a work out. It could be a baby quilt or teen’s quilt depending on the fabrics. What a fun summer I’m going to have.
