Birds!


The batteries in the good camera go from fine to dead with no warning, so bear with me.  (And don't look at the dates -- the old camera thinks it's 2013.) They're not the best pictures, but at least they'll show what I did.

It started a few years ago with a square of cute fabric with little birds on it. I'd lose the birds if I cut it into squares. There were some other pink fabrics in my thrift store scraps, so I folded them all up in a zip lock and told myself I'd do something with them someday.

"Someday" came on Thursday afternoon. I squared up the bird  fabric and added borders. There's another pink solid that'll work for the binding and I've got more of the pink feathery fabric to go into a pieced back.


It all seemed like it was going to be a quick project, started and finished in the same week. Then I started to think about those borders and all of the tutorials over at The Inbox Jaunt and wonder if I could do something better with this than my usual stipple. So I'm going to fold up the top and think about it for a while.

I'm linking up to Patchwork Times and My Quilt Infatuation.

Seldom do my "easy" projects actually turn out to be easy! Sigh. Cute bird fabrics and the borders look great with it.

Sometimes it is nice to have something easy to work on. Looking forward to seeing what you quilt on this guy!

You made the right decision not to cut up that adorable bird fabric! It's super cute just as it is.

Feathers! What a perfect accompaniment for the bird fabric. Lucky you!

I love that you didn't cut the birds. The borders really show them off nicely!

Thanks so much for sharing at Needle and Thread Thursday!
