I am excited to be a part of this blog hop. The birds in this fabric line are so pretty and I was lucky to be able to find the bird house panel and some coordinating fabric to go with it.
I cut each birdhouse and put them into a square in a square block on point...sort of. The birdhouses aren't quite square, but I made them work all the same. I used some of the all over bird fabric as the alternating blocks. I figured the best way to show off this fabric was to cut it in a nice ten inch square.
The blue and the yellow sashing also come from this fabric line.
They are soft colors and compliment the panel perfectly.
As I was contemplating what fabric I wanted for the back I thought about keeping it a nice pastel color to match the front, but I didn't have enough of anything in my stash that matched. My stash is mostly jeweltones and bright rainbow colors, and a lot of halloween (which definitely wouldn't work). After letting the quilt sit for a while, I decided to go with this hydrangea print and matched some colors to go with it. After all, birds live in bushes and trees.
Since I was only able to find the bird houses panel online, I am keeping my fingers crossed that I win one of the bird only panels from some of the other hoppers this week. I have some left over scraps from this fabric line that would go fabulous with more birds. ;)
If you haven't already, make sure you hop on over to these sites to see all the other bird related creations.
