I chose to use a fat quarter bundle of La Dee Da fabric by Erin McMorris for Free Spirit as well as three solids from my stash (Kona Cream, Kona Plum and ? some pale green colour). I ordered it from Fat Quarter Shop this past Christmas when they had an amazing one day sale on all Free Spirit fabrics. I used an Amy Butler print for the main part of the backing, and a white-on-white alphabet print for the white sashing/border. I used a tutorial from The Missouri Star Quilt Company to make the centre blocks. I free motion quilted a meandering stipple all over the quilt in white, and I love it.
And so here is Bluebird's Song!
This is a busy quilt! I think the calmer back and hit of white border helps your eyes rest. I also think choosing a plain solid for the binding- Kona Jade Green in this case- helps with the overall coherency of the quilt.
Also, check out this adorable ribbon I purchased to tie the quilt up for delivery. Singing blue birds! How perfect is that?
I hope this little girl enjoys her quilt- and that her mom loves it too!
