I usually do twelve, but this time I added one more because I wanted to balance out right, left and forward facing birds.
So I decided to make one of the blocks available as a free pattern – and I let you all choose which one would be free!
Thanks so much to everyone who voted!
The winner was Buzz, this cardinal-ish bird.
What can you do with just one block pattern? Tons of things!

Have fun! And send me a photo of what you make! You can email it to me at blockhead[at]wendigratz[dot]com or post it to the Shiny Happy World Facebook page.
