Aviary Quilt and Giveaway

My quilt, Aviary, has just been published in the October/November 2018 issue of McCall's Quick Quilts. Dear husband has already claimed this quilt and we can't wait to have it back home. The colors are so happy! Aviary measures 79" x 92-1/2" and the blocks finish at 12".

The beautiful fabrics you see are from the All A Twitter collection by Hoffman Fabrics. The fun thing about this collection is that the fabrics are printed in panels with 8 fat quarters in each colorway. So, in this quilt I featured:







I absolutely love these fabrics, colors, and textures! The birds are sold as yardage - I want a whole bolt of it... Of course, this pattern would look great with all your scraps, but I just could not resist this Hoffman collection. Who can blame me?


Melissa Kelly from Sew Shabby Quilting added a simple quilting motif to round up the project. As you can see above, the blocks have four patches and the stitch-and-flip method ensures they are assembled in no time at all (Oh, those colors!).


This issue of McCall's Quick Quilts has 8 more quilt patterns which I know you will love. So, I am giving away a copy of it (courtesy of F & W Media). Leave a comment telling me if you would like to make this quilt as a scrappy project, or with a specific colorway/fabric collection. I will announce the winner on Friday, August 24th (and will ship internationally, too).

I made another quilt with these same fabrics, which I will show you in another post, so stay tuned!

Happy sewing day,

  2. This pattern would be fun to make in "controlled scrappy". Think that's where I'd start.

  5. My brain doesn't know how to nicely put together scraps. It would be easier for me to use a fabric line. The bird fabric is really great and ties it all so well together. Thank you.

  14. Love this quilt pattern and the All a Twitter birds ... I bought some of the birds this summer at the quilt show in Sequim, WA (I live in CT!) and I’ve been thinking about what it would become. Thank you for helping me find the perfect pattern ��
