Blogger's Quilt Festival
Blogger's Quilt Festival this time I thought I would post about a quilt that I made a couple of years ago now since I finished another quilt similar to this one this week This quilt is one that pushed two different boundaries for me. It was my first time making an applique quilt and was also the first time I tried free motion quilting. I used a combination of two of my favorite fabric lines (Flea Market Fancy and Katie Jump Rope by Denyse Schmidt). I laugh now when I see how I quilted it to death, but it makes it nice and stiff to use as a wall hanging. It now is being used in the kids playroom downstairs to dress up the wall.

It's adorable! I have this pattern too, one day I will get around to making it! And I love your 'quilted to death' look. Imagine how fast it will be to achieve this same look with your new baby!!
Love all the birds, and the quilted to death look :o)
Wow, that was your first go at free motion? It's beautiful! And I love the aplique too.
so cute! Thanks for sharing.
OMG, this is the cutest quilt ever! So bright and these birds, I can almost hear them chirping!
What a cute quilt. You did an awesome job on the quilting. What is the pattern?
Very sweet quilt, I'm in awe with your FMQ skills!!
Wow! That quilting is FABULOUS! I can't believe that was your first time with fmq. My first attempt was nothing but a mass of thread clumps and shapes that looked mortifyingly like male body parts.
Very bright and cheerful :)
I love this, those little birds are too cute and the fmq is amazing.
So beautiful. That quilting is amazing for a wall hanging.
Oh...how cute!!! If I were one of those birds I would be jealous of the others outfits!
Love this quilt!!! Those birdies art too cute and the quilting lines are amazing!! Wow!!!
That is so cute. I can't believe that was your first attempt at fmq. I love the 'quilted to death look'.
This is a favourite for me! I can imagine how much a child would love the birds, colours, and fabrics.
yeah i love your "quilted to death " look.
It is very cute, and what a lovely idea for the playroom wall.
Your quilt is just precious!!
I started that quilt a couple of years ago and didn't get too far. Now I want to pull it out and give it another go. Great job.
Love this! I wish my first attempt at FMQ looked this lovely - well done!
very cute quilt, I love those birds and the quilting too :-)
This is so cute! Must look lovely in the playroom!
Oh, so cute! I have a thing about birds... ADORABLE!
I actually said, "ooh, cute!" out loud when I saw your quilt. Great job! :)
This quilt is sooooo happy! LOVE it!!!
I love this quilt! It's so bright and cheery!
I've always loved this pattern and yours is lovely. What sort of new machine are you getting?
What an adorable quilt! But the quilting looks so great with the birds :) A great wall-dressing for sure.
Those little birds are so cute! And even if it is quilted to death, I like it - great job on your free motion quilting! what machine do you use?
Really first time free motion quilting? It looks amazing.
What a great little quilt to brighten a child's play space.
Cute Birds! I love the aqua too!
Adorable!! So vibrant and your birdies are precious. Your quilting is beautiful! Thanks for sharing and have a great day
I just love those birds. Did you hand cut them or use a template? I have been wanting to make a bird quilt but can't find a good way to cut out 20 or so black birds in multiple sizes. :)
So cute, I love the colours and design - Fabulous.
Love the birds - so cute and colourful!!
