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 ��


Diane, I will send you an email shortly. Congratulations, and be sure to send a photo of your completed quilt (no pressure!). Thank you for all your comments on this pattern - I agree: scrappy is the best whether it is controlled (all fabrics from one collection) or 'wild'!

As I promised, this is my second quilt with All A Twitter by Hoffman Fabrics. This pattern is called Morning Symphony and finishes at 43-1/2" square with 4" blocks.

The bird print was used as a panel surrounded by vines and flowers which are machine appliqued with the blanket stitch (I always use the blanket stitch with matching thread, with only a few exceptions). The quilting around the vines is a simple echo as you can see, to contrast with the densely quilted center.

I like the texture of the linen fat quarters from the same All A Twitter collection: they make a perfect background for my applique'.

Funky photo, but you can see the quilting on the 4-patches and the leaves around the border.

Here is the top before free motion quilting. I love all those prints! The pattern will be released soon so you can make your version of it.

I hope I have provided enough inspiration for your weekend sewing. Have a fantastic one!
