Tree Bird Hop

Hello all and welcome to my
stop on the Tree Bird Hop!!

I was really unsure on just
what to create with the cute
little birdie fabric.

And then I had a bit of inspiration.
I decided to go BIG!!
Like the biggest quilt that I have
EVER made.
 
It is not yet quilted but,
I am all done piecing it.
 
 
 
 
It is around 100" x 110"
with over 1000 pieces and
42 blocks.
The bird fabric is from
Elizabeth's Studios  and it is just beautiful.
I used a variety of blue tones
of Kona and AMB Clothwork Solids and
I pieced it with my favorite thread, Aurifil.
 
 
I do believe that I will
have to hand quilt it
because of the size.

 
 
 
Go and check out the
other great hoppers
today!!

 P.S. Stay tuned for a HUGE giveaway that
will be coming very soon.

  38. Amy ... this quilt is striking and gorgeous! I love the blue fabrics you have used. Wonderful use of the bird fabrics. I like the new block you used, too. Looks like the same as in one of your Accuquilt blocks. Nice block. Are you planning to make this a new pattern in your shop? Hand quilting this big beatiful quilt will be a labor of love. Looking forward to seeing more as you quilt ... :) Pat
