This past week, I began work on my first quilt! After much searching for the right first quilt, I decided the bird and bunting quilt I found at Helping Little Hands was perfect! Polly's quilt is larger than mine, but I've followed her free template for the triangle banner as well as the bird template she provides on her blog. She also provides a well written tutorial for the quilt. I cut 28 triangles out of various fabrics. Choosing the fabrics was by far the hardest part of this process so far. In the end, I decided on blue, red, and yellow.
Since I'm partial to them, I made mine a blue bird!
I think the background fabric is perfect! I'm going to start attaching my triangles as soon as I'm happy with placement. Then, I'll attach the bias binding and then the bird. Then the hard part right? Actually putting it all together and quilting!
Have a great Sunday everyone and a fabulous week!
