Blue Bird Quilt in Pictures

There were moments that I never thought I'd see the day.
The Blue Bird quilt is finished!
I love the way the fabric shrunk up in the wash and made it look all crinkly, comfy and old.
I couldn't be more pleased with my decision to hand quilt this--even though it delayed the completion of the project two months. I love the juxtaposition of the spirals against the lines of all the squares and rows. I just don't think I could have done that on my machine.
I had some extra squares left so I used them to sew a casing for a hanging rod on the back.
Can I tell you how nervous it makes me to know that this is going to be hanging on the wall like a piece of art? Yikes!  Don't look too close guys!
I think I like the back almost as much as I like the front. This print is my favorite in the whole line. I wish I could have bought a bolt.

I can't wait for baby Blue Bird to cuddle up with her new quilt just in time for her baptism next weekend.  God Bless you sweet girl. Much love from "Auntie" Lindsay!


  1. Lindsay - this is BEAUTIFUL! You are amazing! Honestly, this is the best quilt I have seen since I graduated High School! LOVE IT! (and love you!)

  2. It's a Wonder! A Masterpiece! Honest to goodness, I would snap this up in an instant if it were on sale. I adore it. You are so, so talented!
