Sew Tweet

The birds were singing away outdoors as I snapped a couple of photos to share with you today.
Sew Tweet!  baby quilt

Over the weekend the borders went on this baby quilt.  It was inspired by an advertisement for a quilt show a couple of years ago.  The background fabric looked familiar....IKEA!  And I had a smidge left from backing another quilt.  So, this is what I came up with.  Sew Tweet! 

I was going to put a piano key border on using the fabrics in the applique birds.  Then I found this stripe in my stash.  Perfect!  And there's enough for the back too.

Today I finished up quilting Violin Concerto, and now just have the binding to do on that one before it can be gifted.

Circa 2016 is still on track.

But as I opened up my bag of 1-inch wide scraps for this week's blocks I got side-tracked again.  What else can I do with these?  How about tiny log cabins? Only 3 inches square!  


  1. Sew Tweet! Brilliant ... how cute is this quilt?
    Your 3" block are adorable ... I suppose yiu could sash them and turn them into a tote or a cushion?

  2. Jean, sew tweet is adorable! I love it!
