This is a small, 18.5" x 16" quilt that I sewed up in a couple days for my childhood friend's baby shower.
The pattern is from the book Little Birds
by Design Collective
; the actual pattern was created by Anita Peluso
I really hated the fabrics I was using when I started, I was concerned that they wouldn't look good together, that they weren't looking nice, etc. But after it was all done, I was super pleased with it!
The friend who got this loved it as well, and that makes all the difference.
My sewing machine is not cut out for free-form quilting, so I had to do some tight zigzagging around the birds instead. I took out a lot of the detail around the birds, too, to keep the project to only a couple days. Because my machine is a cheap kids-machine, I'll be using my mom's machine for future quilting projects!
