Birdhouse in my Soul

Posted on

Finished! I’m so excited this quilt is complete. Last night I finished stitching the binding on and I think it looks beautiful.  I do still need to sign it (I’ll embroider my name and the year on the back), but let’s just call it done. Here is the front:

and beautifully folded so you can see the binding.

I think I shall never tire of this lovely Tanya Whelan Sugar Hill fabric.

Next up-I need to make some matching pillowcases with the leftover fabric. If I was a go-getter I’d do that right now, but I have a lot of other sewing/Christmas demands on my time at the moment, so it might have to wait. According to my flickr photos, I posted a photo of the pieces I cut for this quilt in June of 2012. 2012!! It’s taken me over 2 years to finally put this quilt together. And, I’ll point out, this is a very simple pattern, not even complicated, nor did I hand quilt it. No matter, it was worth the wait and I can’t wait to sleep underneath it tonight.

  1. It is beautiful! And it’s HUGE, so I think the time spent is pretty reasonable. Someday I will make a quilt for our bed – this is such an inspiration!

    • Thank you Anne! I knew you’d like it 🙂 This is definitely the biggest quilt I’ve made. I can’t wait to see how it wears over the years.
