There’s a Bird on Me

Today I would like to share with you my new quilt design “There’s a Bird on Me.”

Inspired by a song featured on Sesame Street  remembered from my youth, this quilt has a small red bird on the back of each of the animals.

I’ve used a fabric range called Playday by Sei for Robert Kaufman. I adored the white fabric with little bluebirds from the first moment that I saw it. There is also an elephant fabric in the range which was the inspiration for my quilt, although I haven’t used it in this quilt.

I’ve listed the quilt pattern in my Etsy store. I have also started another page to this blog where I am keeping a list of all of the quilts that I make this year. I am attempting to be organised and productive!

Lastly I have made a video tour of this quilt. (I’m so pleased that we bought Pip that little video camera for his birthday!)

Listen out for a little nod to you, Melinda

    Love the way the backgroung fabric makes it look like there are a number of blue birds (as well as the red bird) “on me”. Just like the Sesame Street clip.

  3. I adore the little red birds AND the little blue birds!!

  14. Hi Racey,
    Quilt looks good. Inspired by the World Cup in Africa no doubt 🙂
    I’m thinking of creating my own animal inspired quilt once Flo lets me have a go on Husky (sewing machine)

    It will be a tribute to the rabbits on the Isle of Wight and their Rock and Roll heritage.
