After completing the Modern Fabric Swap Quilt, I thought I should pull out some of my UFO's and get them done. I pulled out this baby quilt from the cupboard, and discovered that I had only one line of quilting and six little birds left to quilt and just to add the binding!! Sheesh, why did I stop? The little one is almost a year and a half!
I finished this quilt in April. I started it in early 2012, but lost interest in quilting for almost a year. My niece's recent interest in making herself a quilt (pictures to come) inspired me to get started again.
I found a free clip art which I used to draw the birds for free-motion quilting. I quilted around them twice to give them more definition. I love the little bird fabric!
I backed the quilt with a cozy polka dot flannel that picked up the colours nicely.
Needless to say, the babe's mom was very pleased when I surprised her with it one day at work! I don't make my "baby" quilts small, so the good part is that she will be able to use and enjoy it for a long time! Another finish!
