Before I realized that I would be manning a vendor booth at the International Plowing Match in Harriston in August, I had listed my Black Bird baby quilt in my Etsy shop. And it sold at the end of June.
Because the Black Bird pattern has been one of my more popular patterns, I wanted to have a sample to hang in the booth. So after finishing the piecing for the MOD Bear Paw quilt top, I started piecing a new Black Bird quilt. This one featuring a blue bird in place of the red bird in the original quilt. And using a light silver for the background.
As soon as I had finished the original quilt I immediately wanted to make one with a blue bird. So I really enjoyed making this quilt once more!
Unlike the great big MOD Bear Paw, with a quilt this size, I can easily baste right at home on my kitchen table. Except for the backing, this quilt was made entirely from selections from Northcott Fabrics.
The quilting took no time at all. I used a Light Grey Omni from Superior Threads. Both on top and in the bobbin.
Each bird block finishes at 6" square after applying the sashing strips.
I've had this backing fabric in my stash for a long, long time. And am so pleased with how well it blends with the fabrics from the top and the binding. It is Minimalista by AGF Studio.
This quilt will be featured in my booth at the upcoming International Plowing Match in Harriston, Ontario this August 19 and 20th. If you're free, please make plans to come and drop by, if you can. I would love to meet some bloggy friends!
