For The Birds, # 58

Somebody stop me!  I need to be working on Studio 180 Design class samples. But I just had to make one more One Block Wonder.  This great fabric is Brazilia by Alexander Henry.  I wanted to try a different design approach.

I like the unevenness.  Once I sewed the blocks together I bound the uneven edge with a burgundy fabric. I then laid the blocks over the original fabric and adjusted it until it was in a position I liked. I sewed the two together and then squared up the top.

It is a very subtle edge, but I like the way the original fabric flows into the blocks.

I chose another tropical bird fabric for the backing.

You know, no quilt it complete without a label.

    I like the idea of not making the whole quilt w OBW. I have had a project up on the design wall for years. I will take it down and finish it now. Hope the snow has melted. We are having glorious weather in VB.
