Each month, my friend Kait and I are making a project from the book, Last-Minute Patchwork and Quilted Gifts ("LMP+QG" for short). You can see previous projects here.
After taking off the month of October (our trip to Sewing Summit kept us busy!), Kait and I jumped back into the LMP+QG challenge last month with bird ornaments.
I opted to make two birds, using a vintage floral print from my mom's fabric stash paired with white.
The birds were a bit finicky to make (and these were actually my second attempt at the pattern; the first attempt was gnawed on by our dog), and I found that the patten worked best when made from two fabrics that contrasted really well with one another.
Interested in making your own birds? Spool has a great tutorial for a similar bird, posted in the sidebar of their blog.
