Charley Harper for Birch Organic Fabrics, Western Birds
Bird Watching Quilt Kit featuring Western Birds
This quilt is designed to highlight the large-scale patterns found in the fabric line. Each triangle is about 6" finished allowing for each graphic bird to be displayed fully. Through fussy cutting*, each sweet little birdie fits nicely into its own triangle.
*Fussy Cutting is when you cut a piece of fabric to target a specific area of a print, rather than cutting the yardage into random pieces. Suzy suggests using a clear triangle ruler so that you can see the birds as you cut them out.
