Winter Birds twin baby quilts

Posted on: October 22nd, 2020 by Lorna McMahon
 
 
I am so pleased with these two little quilts!
 
 
 
 
A matching pair, one made with Blue Jays and one with Cardinals.
 
 
 
Both quilts were made using the new “W is for Winter Birds” pattern.
 
 
 
 
 
 
The backing is Baby It’s Cold Outside by Hoffman Fabrics.
 
 
 
 
 
 
The Blue Jay on the left and the Squirrel on the right…
 
Facing off in a staring contest!
 
 
 
 
 
The binding matches the wings of the Blue Jays.
 
 
 
 
Quilted with grey thread, in organic wavy lines from edge to edge, using my walking foot.
 
 
 
“Winter Blue Jays” finished at 39″ x 47″
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Those rich reds really POP!
 
 
 
 
The backing is Winter Woods by Sara B. for Camelot Fabrics.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

The Cardinal on the left and the Squirrel on the right…

 
Facing off in a staring contest!
 
 
 
 
 
 
The binding matches the wings of the Cardinals.
 
 
 
 
Quilted with white thread, in organic wavy lines from edge to edge, using my walking foot.
 
 
“Winter Cardinals” finished at 39″ x 47″
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
BOTH of these sweet baby quilts are now listed in my shop here.
