Boy Boy birdie quilt

This is the last of the gifts for the triplets. This one is for the boy. I found this material as a fat bundle at Joann's and used my 50% off coupon so the whole top and binding was only $4.50. The back is from my stash it is not really the typical cotton fabric used for quilting. It almost is more of a canvas type weave but still soft. It was a little harder to work with because it seemed to have a little more stretch to it too. The back got a little bunched up in a couple of spots but once I washed it and it puckered up nicely you can't see the mess up hardly at all anymore. I love when that happens. None of my quilts are perfect from start to finish but hey neither am I;). Now I just need to label the 3 quilts and wait for the babies to come and then they are ready for their new home. It is always a little sad to see them leave my house but also rewarding that someone else will hopefully enjoy them.


  1. I am afraid quilting will stop with Jim's Aunt Dorothy I don't think anyone else in the family has taken it on. Maybe I will learn and teach Mary someday...

  2. I love the colors in that quilt. Your friend is very lucky.
