These love birds love hanging out together – some kissing – and some back to back.
It is also quite unusual for me to leave a lot of negative space in my piecing. But for this quilt, I thought the effect of one row of birds was what this quilt needed. And the row of birds could also be used to make a table runner instead of a quilt!
Of course, the quilting is my usual organic wavy lines using my walking foot. I really got in the groove with this one and love how the waves turned out! I used plain white Gutermann thread both on top and in the bobbin. I chose to bind this little quilt in black – to match the eyes and to provide a strong frame.
The backing is Makin’ Waves in Ink from the True Colors collection by Tula Pink for Free Spirit Fabrics, which you can view here. The boldness of this print is a great contrast to the front.
