Birds of a Feather Background

Here is a picture from the book, Birds of A Feather by Barb Adams and Alma Allen of the two versions of the quilt.

I am making the lighter version, although I am using several different backgrounds as in the darker one. Today, I finished cutting all the background pieces and put them on the design wall approximately where they will be in the quilt.  Keep in mind that there are a lot of spaces between the blocks that will have pieced sections. I didn’t include those, and I cut all the background pieces a bit larger that requires so they can be trimmed to size when ready to assemble.

I can’t wait till the year is done and all the blocks are together.

  1. I can hardly wait to see the completed top myself. It is fun when you have a visual to guide you. I think the multiple, scrappy bakgound will give it added interest.
