A Birdie's View Baby Quilt

I've always liked these collections of quilting fabrics from Heidi Grace. They're all in pretty pinks, purples and aquas with the most adorable little houses, birds, windows, and other simple and pretty patterns. I've had this fabric sitting around for a very long time (years) when I came across a quilt called 'cub crawl baby quilt' by John Q Adams. It's in a book by Fat Quarterly called Shape Workshop for Quilters. As he hints by the title of the quilt, the one Mr. Adams made has bears and other cute wildlife prints. So I think for my purposes, I should change the name of the quilt pattern to 'a birdie's view'.

I thought this pattern would go well with the fabric because the blocks are quite large so that all the fabric can be showcased within the quilt.  And I love how quick and easy it was to piece.  I machine quilted it with wavy lines to soften the look of the large blocks which also created a nice contrast.


  1. My goodness...I have the exact same book and the exact same bird fabric! We have a lot of similar tastes:) This is a sweet quilt! I like the house fabric.

    1. Thank you for the feedback. I will have to follow your blog for some inspiration. :) I really have to start using more of the cute fabrics like these from my stash instead of hoarding them.
