Aviary 2 Quilt

I realized a while back that I never introduced one of our most-used quilts to you! This beauty lives on the back of my couch each day, and each evening you can find me curled up under it! I made it to match these pillow covers using Aviary 2 by Joel Dewberry with some mixed in solids for extra color.

I started this quilt back in 2012, and got the quilt top finished. I managed to get it basted together while SUPER pregnant with baby boy.

The day I "thought" he was coming, I sat on my giant exercise ball, behind my sewing machine and bounced for hours while sewing. It was the only place I was comfortable, and figured I could be productive too. Part of it got quilted. Baby boy didn't quite let me finish. He was in my arms later that night!

This quilt has been washed and used soooo much so it's probably the softest in our house. I still love the oranges, teals and browns. It's timeless, bright and beautiful.

If you've always wanted to tackle making a quilt, large or small, but don't really know where to start... check out the classes at Craftsy! I can't say enough good things about their classes when you're learning a new skill.
