My Mom asked for jewel tones and I decided to work in her love of birds.
I did follow a pattern for this one, as I really liked the play of the red boxes that the blocks created. It also gave me a way to let the fabrics with all those birds and baby deer and fox shine.
If I think of it I'll come back and add the pattern name later.
I had finished this quilt in December, but for whatever combination of reasons I am just gifting this to her now. You know how that goes.
Funny to see the leaves still intact in the pictures, isn't it?
I did random line quilting to compliment the boxes. Gives it a really fluffy feel and I can see doing this type of quilting again.
The back is pieced freestyle with some of the fabrics I still had left from the front.
And here's a look at the brightly striped binding I used to finish the whole thing off. Really makes the whole thing sing!
Hope you are enjoying a special Valentine's Day -- hug and kiss the ones you love! <3
p.s. I will be sharing this with some of the linky parties on my side bar and especially at Fabric Tuesday with Quilt Story.
