"Bird Song", a Robert Kaufman fabric line called "Nature's Poetry", and their pattern.
This is my second quilt that I made for the library fund raiser. It is twin size.
When I went looking for a project to make, I decided this one was adult, neither masculine or feminine, and had warm, comfortable colors--all qualities I anticipated would appeal to an adult crowd. I found the pattern on the manufacturer's website, and went searching for the fabrics. I finally found a kit to order from a shop several states away (I won't talk about that experience). I had never purchased a kit before, and after this experience, probably never will again. I will do my own calculations as to how much fabric I need and what sizes various pieces need to be. Piecing the checker board was a little challenging, but the rest wasn't particularly difficult.
As this is a twin size, it sprawled down my design wall and about 18" on to the floor, so I realized there was no way I could quilt it at home. Ah, to find a longarm quilter. The closest was backed up 2 1/2 months, so I wound up using a quilter whose work I had never seen. Parts are good, parts are a disappointment. That's the way it is somedays. If you aren't a quilter, you won't see the things I see.
It goes up for auction tomorrow (10/23). We will see what my efforts are worth.
