Birds' Quilt

My Mom started this quilt for me many years ago, and I decided to add it to the UnFinished Objects (UFO) list for this year so that it could finally get completed. I had a difficult time deciding on a fabric for the sashing. A cream/light brown fabric with swirling vines found its way into the stash recently, and ended up being the perfect choice for breaking up this very busy quilt pattern. I was able to find and order more of the sashing fabric online, to use for the backing. This quilt is now on my bed, with a coordinating pillow case and mini-pillow -- perfect for lying in bed in the early morning hours listening to all of our backyard avian winter visitors singing. Long-arm quilted by B&B Machine Quilting of Orland, CA, in a swirling hearts pattern.
