Bird’s Nest, found in the perpetual calendar, 365 Quilt Blocks a Year by Nancy Martin, is drafted from a 5 x 5 grid. You can also find this block listed in BlockBase as #3237.
I came up with a file loaded with designs while playing with Bird’s Nest. There’s alot one can do with this block.
Just to get started, a simple straight set with borders…blocks set square side-by-side:
Straight set with borders and an alternate block.
Bird’s Nest set on point, with borders:
Set on point with an alternate block and borders.
There is so much more one could do. Value and color, as well as arrangement, sashing, and different borders all could dramatically change the design.
If you EQ, then go have fun!
