Over the last month, I’ve been working on the first couple of blocks for a new Block-of-the-Month quilt, Bluebird Lane.


I love how these blocks are coming together, and the fabrics I’ve chosen, from Blackbird Designs new range, ‘Autumn Lily’, Windham Fabrics, ‘Jefferson County’ and others.

New bom block2

I will keep posting block pics, as I work through them.

If you would like to register your interest, in perhaps doing the Block-of-the-Month, you can do so by emailing me at: thebirdhouse@bigpond.com

There is no obligation. When the quilt is finished, and the BOM program ready to go, I will send you a list of stores, who will be running the BOM, so you can contact a store in your area.

Happy Stitching! Natalie.

    thanks for your interest in the ‘Bluebird lane BOM.
    Are you in Spain?
    If so there is a number of shops in Spain that have been running it as a BOM.
    The best point of contact to start with may be our distributor there which is Oyambre
    Please feel free to contact us if you have no success and if need be can supply direct to you.

    While ordering The Splenid Sampler I happened upon your beautiful book Country Style Charm, I love it , received it yesterday and have started with the small love heart for the quilt. Your style is just adorable! I have a friend who loves animals, gardens and birds which is why I’m making the quilt. Thank you so much for beautiful book! 💗🌸🐝

    Will there be a UK stockist for the BOM
    I am just about finished the Foxley Village quilt, one more block to do. I have enjoyed it immensely.
    Thanks, Caroll

    • Natalie Bird says:

      Hi Caroll, Thanks very much for your comments & glad that you are enjoying Foxley Village.
      This year we have supplied orders of Bluebird Lane to both Poppy Patch & Cross Patch in the UK.
      Also we regularly supply to ‘Sew Enchanting’ & ‘Coast & Country Crafts’ over there.

      Kind regards

    Hola Natalie soy novata en esto del patchwork pero me he lanzado a hacer esta colcha, me iría muy bien poder ver los otros bloques 1 a 1 xq el mayor problema que tengo es identificar las telas
    Gracias anticipadas

  7. Laurie Waddell says:

    I am interested in knowing where to join for your BOM.

    • Natalie Bird says:

      Hi Laurie – we don’t actually run the BOM ourselves but can put you in touch with some of our stockists that may be running it as a BOM program.
      If you can let us know where you are located & we can look to see who we have supplied Bluebird Lane to recently that may be reasonable close to you.

    Hi Natalie,

    I am from China. I just got your book “Make it Blue” today, love it soooooo much! I bought it from a local fabric agent. When I saw your lovely style on the online shop, I bought it right away since it just goes deep into my heart. Then I searched on the internet to browse your homepage. I hope you will be introduced more to China in the future 🙂

    • Natalie Bird says:

      Hi Chen, Thank you for your lovely comment. I’m so glad to hear you’re enjoying my book. I hope to increase my visibility in China also. At the moment we don’t supply directly to this market, as I’m not sure how many people like to do patchwork and quilting. I hope you will enjoying making some projects from the book 🙂
