It was such a pleasure to make this mini quilt for a friend! Sara (@thekeenbean) painted these adorable bird house paintings that were the inspiration behind the birdhouse quilt pattern. I wanted to make her something special using the pattern, so I created this little mini quilt!
She and her husband have three children, so I added three little birds to the mini quilt. I debated putting a mom and dad bird on there, too, but was worried five birds in the little space would be a bit to much. When it came to colors, I used colors similar to her original painting…loved the vibrant tones she used in the original. To personalize the mini quilt, I added a bit of machine embroidery to the bottom; it reads “The Pierce Family”. Finishing it off, I put two buttons in the same bright green at the top so she could hang it up.
This was such a fun little pattern to work with…and I’m making another version now in Christmas fabrics! Can’t you just imagine this with little Christmas trees and presents? So cute.
Just for fun, this post links up at some of these great Catholic and quilting sites!
