Bluebird progress

Bluebird Sew Off Are you making progress?  Fabric is arriving, first cuts are sliced and dreamy ideas are starting to become reality as (I trust) some are mustering for our Bluebird Sew off.  

Right now, your chances are pretty good!  At about a week and a half from the contest deadline, we have all of two entries so far.  Come now, I'm not the only one enchanted by this line!  Even if you were already sewing with Bluebird, you can enter your finished project into the sew off.  Don't be shy!

I'd love to see what you've made!  Enter by adding your finished item photo to the link party here or just use the hashtag #bluebirdsewoff on Instagram to tag your entry for the contest!  You can tag works in progress with the same hashtag, to share those sneak peaks.  


This week a big box of pillow forms and invisible zippers arrived, so I was able to finish my scrappy pixel pillows. 

Pixel Pillows

These cuties are samples for my next class as well as good excuses to play fast and loose with my scraps.

I'd enter this mostly-Bluebird pillow into the sew off if I weren't.. err.. naturally disqualified!  

stashings from Pink Door Fabrics

But I have another Bluebird-inspired project in the works anyhow.  I received some happy mail from Pink Door Fabrics, which included a huge cut of the Flocked print destined to become curtains (and some stashings like the Cotton & Steel sprinkles and those Modern Background text prints that I've been eyeing).  All my curtain-making supplies are here, so I guess it's time!  Or, then again, how about I do that on Saturday?

There's patchwork calling today...


p.s.  It's not too late to snatch up some Bluebird at Pink Door Fabrics or Mad About Patchwork in Canada.  And, enjoy!

  1. I love the line, the dark indigo is gorgeous. However, I am on a fabric buying moritorium. Darn.....I would some!

  3. Yep, I'll have a quilt to enter. I think you will like it. I used some fabrics like Kona oyster and the c+s puff. I'm not sure about the other item. I'd love to make something but there's probably not enough time. Just being realistic!

    1. I am using Kona Oyster in my Bluebird Still Point quilt. And I love that C+S Puff. I'm sure your quilt will be delightful =) Have a good weekend!

  4. Wow, I love the two pillows perched there together!
    I love this fabric. What a classy line-- or maybe you just make it look classy. ❤

  5. Oh Rachel, those pillows look smashing!
    I'm looking forward to seeing what people sew, but can't do anything for the Bluebird Sew Off because of other time sensitive commitments.
    I pinned your gorgeous poster to a huge group board for quilters on Pinterest, so I hope that sends more people to learn about the contest.

  7. Hi Rachel: I was just thinking I don't have time to participate but I went back to your original post and realized I have some bluebird fabric all ready to cut out for a little project so I just might move that little project forward!

    1. Exactly! When I planned the Sew Off I was thinking there are folks who already bought a bit of this or that and might be cooking something up. No need to start something new. Just looking forward to seeing what everyone's up to!

  8. I so hope my fabric arrives tomorrow! I jumped in and bought some when I saw your post, but then forgot about Easter slowing down the postal system! Fingers crossed! xx

  9. I'm playing blog catch up can't you tell :)
    Things have been so busy I have not worked of score 4 and I forgot to order some flock. So I will have to sit out of this sew off. Good luck to everyone and thank you Rachel, for always coming up with fun things for us.
