A BIRD'S NEST in soft tan chambray or broadcloth is contrived
along modern angles to enclose nine bright blue-green cubist eggs.
The whole forms a really lovely block to use in a whole quilt or for
a gay little patchwork pillow about 14 inches square. By the way, a
boxed edge of the blue squares and white triangles would be a
perfect finish for such a pillow. It would even be worth while to
piece such a border for the quilt.
Cardboard cutting patterns are made from the 5 here given.
Mark around these onto material, but cut a seam larger sewing back
to the pencil line.
Material Estimate: This quilt sets together with plain white
blocks and a six-inch border which makes it finish about 82 inches
square. For the 13 pieced blocks and 12 plain ones, and border you
will need 1 1/2 yards of tan, 1/2 yard blue, and 7 yards of white.
