When my friend, Sarah, at Sarah Goer Quilts asked me to test a new pattern called Scattered Squares, I very enthusiastically agreed to do so because of how much I admire Sarah’s modern quilting aesthetic.
I decided to pattern test the baby size and was excited to see that a fabric I had purchased awhile back with my sister, Jackie, in mind would work perfectly for the small squares. Jackie loved birds, so this quilt basically named itself. Below is a pic of the 20 birdie squares before they were bordered with Kona Aqua:
This pattern was straight-forward and easy to sew, and I decided to quilt it with (mostly) straight lines spaced one inch apart. I backed it with a Joel Dewberry bird print (I like to think these are the little birds from the front all grown up 🙂 And the binding fabric reminds me of bird feed.
Linking up to Cooking Up Quilts: Main Crush Monday.
I love the thought of the birds on the backing print being the birds on the front all grown up!! Looks great. 🙂
I love how you pulled the colors from the backing to use on the front. Looks awesome! And very modern!
Cute, cute, CUTE!! I love the birdies on the front and especially the grown up version on the back. And the quilting is just perfect for this, too! ~smile~ Roseanne
Beautiful colour choices here. I also love the random look to the squares.
Love! Great color choices, they go together perfectly! Adorable!!
