This is the image of block #27 – Darting Birds – in the FW 1920 Sampler quilt book.
And these are the paper pieces, which caused me a headache before I understood how they were meant to be placed. (Now that I’ve finished the block I see that they needed to be turned 45o)
After I made the different parts of block #27, I puzzled to put them in the right order again.
It’s funny to see that the purple fabrics look so different in the pictures!
Phew, this looks more like it! Setting the block on point gives yet another look!
I’ve never seen birds playing darts, but I suppose the block name means something different!?
The cd in the FW 1920 Sampler quilt book doesn’t contain the paper piecing templates. Some years ago, I became a member of a Yahoo group and I was able to download a file with the PP templates, but they don’t contain a sketch of how to put the block parts together. The files aren’t accessable anymore, so I’m glad I have a download.
The CD in the FW 1930’s Sampler quilt book is so much better. It has clear PP templates and a sketch to refer to for the placement of the block parts.
