Free as a bird in June...

June already.....
 it's hard to believe we are almost half way through 2010!!

June

It still is a bit quiet here on my blog, sorry for that...
Just hope you haven't forgotten me by now!

Update on last post...I was still thinking abc and numbers for the new baby quilt
when I spotted this gorgeous fabric.
With Heleen I was in this lovely quiltstore in Zoutelande.
And there they were...cute little birds.

I immediatly had a vision on how to use these cuties in the baby quilt.
I had the perfect pattern made up in my mind.
This pattern didn't included abc or numbers, so they have to wait for a future project.
I bought the fabric with the larger birds (above) and this pretty stash (below).

I did cut out all the birds and only used the blue ones for the quilt.

The pastel colored checker fabric is also the fabric that's used as liner for the baby crib.

The finished top is on the hoop and ready to quilt.
Hope I'll be back soon to show you the result!

What a great idea! They are beautiful on your quilt.

I love the birdie fabric and cutting them out into squares rather than using a whole piece is a very inspiring idea.

Happy sewing,

Wat een mooie babyquilt wordt dit! Vooral de stof met de vogels vind ik geweldig leuk. Veel plezier met het doorquilten.

Chookyblue...... said...

great fabrics Corry........so cute and pretty........

lifeinredshoes said...

Well Corry, you've done it again! The perfect combination.

I have a question, I am about to begin quilting a project that is about 60 inches square. Do you baste stitch your quilts before you start?

So confusing???

Pierelantijntjes said...

Prachtige stofjes Corry. Dat wordt een hele mooie quilt!.
Ja, het winkeltje in Zoutelande heeft leuke stofjes.
Groetjes van Ester

SofiAlgarvia said...

The birds are beautiful, and this quilt is lovely, "Grandma"!
Wonderful colours and patterns.

Kim킴 said...

How adorable! The birds are cute and the colors are so cheery! I'm liking your hoop that you use for hand quilting. It's large but not gigantic. That might be something I'll need to invest in eventually. :)

Leslie said...

I know Cory ~ I can't believe we are halfwas through 2010!!!

Elizabeth said...

That is so beautiful! I will have to look for something like that.

Corrie said...

Ongelofelijk zo snel als het jaar gaat, ik had er nog niet bij stilgestaan totdat ik bij jou las dat we bijna halverwege zijn, waanzinnig!
Maar nu ga ik zitten genieten n zuchten bij die prachtige babyquilt, het wordt een heel fris en dromerig quiltje, echt prachtig Corry!
