Eurasian Jay {Forest QAL}

I haven't shown much except Forest QAL blocks lately, but that will change soon, I promise. Last 2 weeks I wasn't sewing almost at all (Easter, driving to Poland, visiting family) and now, slowly, I'm starting sewing again. I have few WIPs to finish.

Today I'm sharing next Forest QAL block - Eurasian Jay. I have to admit that this block is very difficult and tricky to sew (for a 12" x 12" block; it would be much easier if it would be bigger) and I spent quite a time sewing all those little pieces together (still, some points do not meet, but it has to stay as it is at this point).

Niewiele sie szylo przez ostatnie prawie 3 tygodnie. Troche siedzialam przy komputerze i poprawialam stare wzory PP, a teraz czas najwyzszy odkurzyc maszyne i wziac sie do roboty ;) 
Dzis kolejny blok w Forest QALu - nasza europejska sojka. Blok (przyznam bez bicia) bardzo trudny. Gdyby byl w wiekszej wersji (niz 12 cali x 12 cali) to byloby znacznie latwiej bo i czesci do zszywania bylyby wtedy wieksze, a tak trzeba sie potrudzic z malutkimi papierkami i duza iloscia zachodzacych na siebie zapasow na szwy:




Block measures 12" x 12" finished (EDIT: I corrected labelling on the pic): 
Blok ma 30 cm x 30cm:
 
  
*here is the mirrored image of the block (EDIT: I corrected labelling on the pic):
* tu jest lustrzane odbicie bloku: 



*Important!* The templates in pdf are mirrored, so to get the correct direction in the block (jay facing right), you have to sew with printed-side of the paper up and the fabric is on the non-printed side of the paper, with the wrong side of the fabric facing the paper.
*Wazne!* Zeby otrzymac dokladnie taki blok jak pokazalam na pierwszym obrazku (sojka zwrocona w prawa strone), musicie szyc strona zadrukowana do gory, a material ma znajdowac sie pod spodem, lewa strona zwrocony do papieru. Jesli chcecie, mozecie oczywiscie uszyc blok w odbiciu lustrzanym; mysle, ze nie robi to zbyt wielkiej roznicy :)

Here's a blank picture, so you can play a bit with colour choices before sewing:

Tutaj obrazek bez kolorow, zebyscie mogli wyprobowac zestawienia kolorystyczne zanim zaczniecie szyc:


Assembling parts:


That's how my sewing looked like:
A tu kilka etapow z mojego szycia:






Don't forget to show us your block in Forest QAL Flickr group! I hope you will not get discouraged by the difficulty of the block :)

Nie zapomnijcie pokazac swoich blokow w naszej Flickr'owej grupie! Mam nadzieje, ze nie zniechecicie sie trudnoscia bloku i wkrotce pokazecie swoje uszyte sojki :)

  3. Niesamowita jest. Jestem trochę (bardzo) w tyle, bo i lasek i lisek jeszcze w lesie, ale na pewno się skuszę na sójkę również.

  6. Thank you for generously sharing this quilt a long. I've loved all the blocks, especially this one. I plan to make all of them in the fall when I have more time. (Right now I have two baby quilts to make, and the babies won't wait!)

  9. Fantastyczny blok! Właśnie na sójkę czekałam. Ale ona trudna jest a ja do tej pory tylko jedno PP uszyłam. No nic- nie podaję się. Zrobię jeszcze kilak na próbę i biorę się za Panią S.
