It’s For the Birds: Bloggers’ Quilt Festival

The Bloggers’ Quilt Festival is run by Amy Ellis of Amy’s Creative Side.

I am sharing a quilt I made a couple years ago in honor of the English style of framed quilts.  The birds are in the toile fabric.  And as a bonus for the birds there are four trees as cornerstones.  There are smaller birds in these trees.    Peacocks are also in a couple borders.

Enjoy all the birds in the festival.   In this last picture you can see one more set on birds in the outer boarder. On the bottom boarder I did a little bit of Brodery Perse where there had to be a seam to keep the birds facing the correct way.  It was not hard to overlap some flowers to make the seam less obvious.

I should say that I removed a real bird nest from my porch.  It is a spring ritual.  We live in a timber but they love the shelter of my porch!
