I'm so pleased to present Beach Birds. This is a very traditional pattern called Birds in the Air. I am calling this Beach Birds because I made this while snowbirding at the beach in South Carolina. Notice the flying geese are in the "V" formation, getting ready to head north. This quilt will be heading north really soon too. It needs to be quilted and bound before our guilds quilt show at the end of April.
This pattern is from BHG's American Patchwork & Quilting Magazine from February 2000.
After the quilt show, this quilt will be Mitchell, my grandson's quilt. He picked out the pattern from my collection of quilt magazines. He loves the color blue. It's always been his favorite. And finally, he personally authorized every blue fabric that went into this quilt.
