This has been a lovely little project. I saw something like it over here with r0ssie and thought that it would make a fun (and slightly modern) baby quilt. Or two.
It's a little more piecing than I usually do for baby quilts, but it's simple and straightforward, so I don't mind. I love seeing the perfect little stacks all pinned together and I can sew them together mindlessly while I watch spring happen outside my window. Before I know it, I look down and I've got a whole string of birds to be pressed and pinned up.
I'll leave it up on the wall for a few days--adding and subtracting birds, moving them to the left and the right, adjusting the white space--until it looks just right. And then quick, take it down and pin it together before I overthink the whole thing.
