Circle of birds.

Hello my quilty friends! Today I have a fun little quilt for you. I made this cute little quilt it is about 40.5 X 40.5 made out of my fat 1/8th Liberty of London fabric that the kids got me as a Christmas gift last year. 
i used the free pattern that came in the magazine Modern Patchwork by Fons & Porter. ( May/June 2017 issue) you can find it here.
I am so happy the way this turned out. It is also quilted by me with a little ( okay, a lot) of help on my dear friend Diane's long arm- Innova... oh my gosh what a dream machine!! It quilt beautifully. We used a swirl pattern to do an all over quilting, I think it makes it look like they are flying on a windy day.
Here are some of my favorite little birds from the quilt. 
 Love the blue fabrics. 

 And the sweet!
and then this pretty flowery purple fabric. 
Here is a look of the fun fabric I used on the back and the cute grunge dot as the binding. 
 Its cute little birds! 
One more look before I go.
 Thanks for stopping by and until I see you again wishing you Quilty hugs~ Heide 
Finish up Friday
