This is the third time I have made this Black Bird quilt design. You can read about the first quilt here and the second quilt here. I had listed my first Black Bird baby quilt in my Etsy shop and it sold at the end of June. I made the second Black Bird quilt to help promote the pattern. Although I did not list it for sale, I did have someone make a request to purchase the quilt. So I now had the pleasure of making this quilt once again!
Here below you can see that the second quilt had a nice variety of blacks and grays for the crows and this one featured a blue bird....
This time I chose a lot of darker fabrics - no grays - and then found a nice red plaid for the interloper....
It is really fun to make the same quilt more than once because it gives me a chance to change things up. And to try out some ideas that I passed on during the first making. For this one I added more red to match that plaid love bird. The backing is a geometric print in red. And the red plaid was used in the making of the flanged binding.
The Black Birds pattern is listed for sale in my pattern shop here.
The "Black Birds" baby quilt finished at 40" x 46"
and was the 14th use of my 2nd edition of 100 labels
ordered from Ikaprint.
