Block 8 is "Beachcomber"--The Western Sandpiper searches the surf for treasure among the beach roses, while a gorgeous sailing ship glides by just off shore.
Choose from the "Quilt-as-you-Go" block to make our big heirloom quilt, "In-The-Hoop" block to make fully finished blocks suitable for other uses, or buy the Western Sandpiper only for your own project inspiration.
Quilt-as-You-Go: Make a gorgeous block completely quilted in-the-hoop each month... save up your creations for the end of the year, when we'll add border pieces and you can complete your masterpiece by hand stitching them together. We're planning thirteen birds for our on point quilt, but you can take however many you have finished by end of the year, and make a fabulous, finished project! 5," 6," 7," and 8" sizes included with instructions.
All-in-The-Hoop This is the same design, but with a satin stitch border added around the edges, so all you'll need to do is to zig zag stitch them together. It is also quilted in the hoop.
Bird Only If you just love birds as we do, you may buy the design only, no quilting, with a color chart. Use it for your own project inspiration. Design provided for 5x7, 6x10, and 7x12 hoops.
