Birdy Quilt.

We had a poor bare area of wall in our hall which I felt desperately needed a nice cosy quilt to keep it warm.

I fell in love with Valori Wells range of fabrics called "Nest" and decided to use the birds panel as a central design surrounded by borders. I free motion quilted it. There's a section of spiral quilting just above the middle bird which I don't like but can't face pulling it out.

There's a strange rumour going round that we may get some sun on Monday. We may all melt!

So pretty! I haven't thought of using panels yet, but love the way you did that.

This is so pretty, Maria. And the blue you use always reminds me of you!

My jaw actually hit the floor when I saw this quilt!! It is gorgeous. How long did it take to make?

I think the quilting is great, you are too hard on yourself. Leave it as is, it looks wonderful.
