My Blackbirds quilt is finished!

Hi everyone!!

I have another finish!

Yep! I finished by Blackbird quilt designed by Lorna at Sew Fresh Quilts. 
I took a workshop with her at the beginning of the month. It was a lot of fun. 
I'm so glad I got it done before the month  is over. It feels really great. 
I quilted it on my Gracie frame using my old kenmore machine. It was a challenge since it was my first time. But I kept the quilting simple with straight and curvy lines across the top. 
I used a soft polka dot flannel on the back, that I purchased at one of my local quilt shops. I pieced the batting from leftovers I had. The binding was made from two of the blacks that I used for the birds. 

All in all, I'm really happy with it. The quilting is not my best. But it's still super cute, I hope you like it!!

The quilt came out beautifully and the quilting really sets it off. I think the backing is perfect for the design.

Adorable quilt, and doesn't it feel good to get a project done in a reasonable amount of time? That's what I strive to do, but doesn't always happen.
