Happy New Year to all.
New year, new quilt and soon a new baby. I had to get my skates on once we were finished with Christmas, New Year and a second birthday as I really wanted to finish this quilt before baby arrives. Quite by accident Melissa and I chose a lot of fabrics depicting birds. Very serendipitous (love that word) as she has an owl theme in the nursery.
I used a plain cotton for the back, but added some simple four patches to make it interesting.
I kept the quilting very plain by stitching down the sides of each panel. As we don't know whether baby is a boy or a girl, I think the colour scheme will work well for either.
Because of all those birds, I called the quilt "Count the birdies" and I think I had better now go and do just that because it is inevitable that one day a little voice will ask Nana how many birdies there are.
