I've shown you a few things I've made to decorate Baby Jack's (side of the) room HERE and HERE but I haven't shown you anything I've made for Maggie. Well, I guess that's not entirely true, I did end up putting the birdie tree in there after we did the Birdie Baby Shower a few months ago. Anyway, I guess I better show you some of her stuff to. Maggie's room is decorated in browns, pinks and greens. All sorts of patterns, shades, prints, etc. And there are little birds everywhere because she's my little Magpie.
I am no quilter by any means. I don't have the skills or the patience, but I did want to try so here is my first and only quilt (thus far).
I pieced all the squares together and then used what I think is called the tie method to secure it all in place. I used brown embroidery thread to secure a button (brown, green and pink) and then tied it in a knot leaving a little thread showing out of the button. The quilt top was made using pieces of fabric from my personal stash.
Here's the whole thing...
But I don't want to dwell on the negative so let's just look at the cute little birdies on the front again shall we?
Love those birdies!
I think I'm ready to tackle a dino quilt next!
