With so many babies being born in the next several months,
I've been on the lookout for baby quilts to make.
We have boys and girls coming in the extended family,
so I need quilts for both genders.
While on a quilt shop website,
I found this pattern and knew I had to order it!
This quilt is so not my style of quilting,
but I love it!
AND it was a blast to make.
The pattern is called
"Bird on a Wire"
by Barbara Persing.
I didn't want the quilt to be stiff with so many applique pieces,
so I pulled out my copy of
"Crafted Applique" by Lara Bucella
that came out a number of years ago.
She uses Modge Podge instead of an iron on adhesive
and it works well.
It was fun choosing the fabric for the birds
and putting them together.
I've had this bird fabric in my stash for a while.
It was found by a friend at a local thrift shop!
Organic straight line quilting was sewn across the quilt
and the blue binding was added.
This quilt will go into the pile of quilts
waiting for babies.
