Behind the Seams of "The Love Birds"

The "Love Birds" quilt was a joy to create. 

I found this gorgeous watercolor bird fabric at a Quilt Show in Portland, Oregon. Unfortunately, I only bought 1/2 yard at the time, so it was only enough for a lap quilt. Thankfully, after much searching I was able to source 8 more yards online. 

I love making the "Flying Geese" which are the triangles of pinks and magentas with the white or grey background. I love the irony of this block being a bird related block for a quilt that is all about birds. 

I wanted this quilt to be a joyful addition to a living room or bedroom, which is why I chose the bright pinks, purples and magentas to balance out the pattern fabric of the birds and flowers.

I chose a heavy weight cotton/wool blend of batting inside to provide a lot of warmth. 

And I chose the straight line top quilting to emphasize the direction of the flying geese and to draw your eye to the intricate piecing. 

This quilt is a Limited Edition since the fabric is no longer in stock and I won't be able to make more. 

It is available in Lap, Full, Queen, and King sizes.
