Finished Red Birdie Quilt

I quilted this in straight vertical lines. I started in the center along the seam and then used the width of my presser foot to guide my subsequent quilting lines. The binding is made with 2 inch strips of the bird fabric by Tula Pink. The finished quilt is about 18 x 21 inches.

There is a local Women's Club Art Show coming up soon and I think this will be my entry.

I have this bird fabric in all 4 colorways. I am envisioning additional small quilts made with the other colors--teal, yellow and green.

Here you can see the quilting lines in more detail.

For the back I used a scrap of flannel that features birds in trees. I think this is a Christmas print, but it works perfectly for this project.
