Everyone knows if you have a Blue Hen and a Blue Rooster you’re going to end up with a Blue Chick… The blue chicken family is complete!

Blue Chick

This little chick finishes at a super cute 4″ square, perfectly to scale with the hen and rooster patterns.  The tiny pieces make it slightly more challenging to piece than my other patterns, but take your time to piece accurately and I’m sure you’ll find the end result adorably worth the effort!

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know I’ve been in the US for a nearly month-long holiday leading up to QuiltCon in Savannah, Georgia. Outrageously large unicorn tote in tow, I headed down from North Carolina with Swampy to see some quilts and friends! I don’t want to have a really long post (though I didn’t take many photos at all!) so I’m splitting this up into a post for the exhibition and a post for friends and the class I took.

The first day, Thursday, we leisurely explored the exhibit hall to see all the quilts. I only took pictures of a couple because I guess I’m very particular? I enjoyed many of the award winning quilts (there is certainly no doubt Bling was the Best in Show), but there’s plenty of photos of those floating around so I’ve chosen not to include them here. (P.S. I used a new camera to take these pictures so if they look especially bad it’s because I don’t know what I’m doing with it yet!) (more…)

You may recall, last week I put out my free borders pattern for the Mercury Burst block, and I was having issues making it turn out the size I wanted… I kid you not, I had a dream about how to fix it. So I have fixed it! I also noticed a silly mistake, so I’ve fixed that as well.

I have updated the original post accordingly. Apologies to those of you who have downloaded the pattern already, but it is free so pick up an improved copy here!  If you still don’t have Mercury Burst, get a copy here.
