Bright Birds.

Another lot of binding done and another quilt finished!

This quilt started out from a selection of fat quarters that I had collected. It meant that the quilt couldn’t grow too big and would just be a wall hanging size. That was fine.

I fussy cut the birds and then simply added mix and match borders around them. I did straight line quilting from edge to edge and also around each framed bird. I like the bright, cheeriness of the quilt. In hindsight, the only thing I would maybe change is that I would add in some plain white around the birds so it was not as busy. But now that it is finished it will stay as it is.
