Birds on a Wire Quilt Block

This Birds on a wire Quilt Block is such a fun two-color quilt block to play with! It is fairly simple to make, and the construction is designed so that the wire is pieced last, which makes for a straight wire. No tiny piecing to make sure parts of the wire line up!

You can use whatever colors you like to make your Birds on a Wire quilt block – a blue sky with black or brown birds would look great. I used yellow and purple for some fun contrast. The idea is that these birds on a wire make a fun silhouette.

If you’d like to make a full quilt with birds on a wire, you can make changes to the block. Piece them in a different order, add more of one bird or another, and you’ll get a random assortment of birds on your wire.
