A Blue Partridge
I made this Partridge in a Pear Tree block for my Holly Jolly Christmas quilt back in March. It has been on my design wall since then. I decided early on that I did not like it--the colours did not go with the rest of the colours in the other blocks. I was not keen on the idea of taking it apart and changing the colours of the partridge and played with the idea of making an alternate block instead. In the end, I decided to make a blue partridge. I took the block apart and remade the bird. I am much happier with the blue partridge...
The "blue bird of happiness" co-ordinates much better with the other blocks!
Cathy, is ready to quilt this one up as soon as I get it to her. It will be done in plenty of time for the Christmas season.
