A Variety of Projects With Becky's Flock of Fun

Make your dream holiday quilt with Becky Goldsmith! The Birds in Toyland quilt is playful, whimsical, and maybe a bit mischievous. ;) These birds have personality! The Christmas trees signify the season, and the string of lights on the quilt provides a festive glow that will make you smile.

Make the whole quilt or choose the blocks you like best to make smaller projects like pillows, wall quilts, table toppers, and more. The block templates are 8” and 10” but you can enlarge the blocks to any size to fit your own creative ideas! During the course, Becky will teach you how to master wool hand-appliqué and needle-turn hand-appliqué with clear and upclose instructions. You can choose either technique or combine both for a unique combination of the two. Spark joy as you embellish your Birds in Toyland projects with sequins, beads, ribbons, and trim to make your quilt bright and sparkly.
