Product Description

“Bird Walk” Featuring River Rock Primo Batiks
by Lisa W. Norton and Lora W. Zmak of Material Girlfriends Patterns

“Some quilts just sing to you. I designed this quilt while camping with my husband in a high dessert in Nevada. There were full-blown wind storm that blew dust non-stop for hours. While cocooned in our antique Aristocrat trailer, I drew and designed the Bird Walk quilt. Each block just sang to me! I travel with an encyclopedia of quilt blocks (Yes, I’m a quilt book addict) and pulled every block I could find that had a bird name. After careful selection, I drew from our nation’s quilt block history the following blocks: Duck Track, Bird’s Nest, Hummingbird, Darting Birds, Duck Foot and Return of the Swallows. I also used flying geese and a couple pinwheels.”

“Since I love paper piecing, I also drew a few new paper pieced patterns, a couple of bird houses, a feather and the yellow finch. The finch block was inspired by a design in the quilt block encyclopedia, which I then altered for easier construction. I later showed my sketches to Lora. She was as delighted with them as I was and determined that Marcus’ Primo Batiks: RIVER ROCK collection would be the perfect choice.”
