Mini Quilt Monday - Two Birds


I have been meaning for some time now, (but keep forgetting) to start participating in "Mini Quilt Monday" which was started by the talented Malka of a stitch in dye. Finally, the brain cells kicked in, I remembered, and made this little quilt.


The bird print, which I adore, is from Ikea.



Two Birds is now available in my shop.

You can check out more mini quilts and join the fun over at Mini Quilt Monday's Flickr group.

This is lovely. Do you have a quilting machine or are those perfect wiggly lines done freehand?

You are truly amazing

Victoria said...

Thanks everyone!
Jackie, the quilting lines were done on my regular sewing machine... it is actually a curved zig-zag stitch that I elongated the length setting on. Hope that makes sense!
