Baby Birds!

It's always so much fun to get letters from readers who've I've inspired. Last week I received a lovely email from Pam in Ohio who had bought my bird tutorial.

"I bought your pattern a couple months ago, and frankly, was terrified to start. Once I did, it was so well-written that I proceeded to make 12 birds in 2 days! I had an assortment of sizes so I added strips and trimmed them each to 9.5" square. I bordered them with 2" cut sized strips. All my  birds are chubby as this is a baby quilt, and I wanted baby birds. The quilt finished at about 46" x 58". I hope you enjoy seeing what customers create from your pattern."

WOW! What can I say, but thank you Pam for the compliment and the photo. YES! I love hearing from you. 

Pam included a photo of the quilt she made. Fun, fun, fun!

Stunning, and I am spurred on to finish at least one bird. I did make several sets of legs, and then life and other things intervened. Maybe it's time to pull it out and finish the lovely designs.

Oh - it's a fabulous quilt. Well done Pam.

But does she know that she now needs to give each bird a name and write a wee story about it? LOL

I just finished a project that produced a lot of scraps with good bird potential and started looking at your tutorial again. This charming quilt provides some additional incentive to get started.

Pam, fantastic! And you made it so quickly! There is one lucky baby getting a beautiful quilt.

Thanks for the kind comments. My advice is just do it! I made one to get acquainted with the concept, then assembly-lined the rest. I will be making more of these great birds- likely adult ones next time. The tutorial truly walks you through the entire process and makes it fun!
