the soft colors of the aviary line is a perfect line for a timeless baby girl quilt.
one aviary honey bun find them in my etsy store.
first you’ll want to separate your colors. you’ll want 8 strips for each block (i used 2 colors of each color for each block)
once you have your 8 strips you are going to sew your strips together 2 at a time
press the seams.
once you have two of them together sew 4 together and so forth.
you will end up with all 8 strips sewn together.
cut off the excess so you have a nice clean line
next you are going to cut your strips to 8 1/2 inches in length (which should be your width as well)
once you have all your blocks cut out, you want to place your stripped blocks horizontal and perpendicular
i wanted a square quilt so i laid out 5 squares by 5 squares.
sew your blocks together.
remember the cream fabric that were cut into 5 (5 1/2 in) strips? well take two of them and trim them to 40 1/2 inches
sew them to left and right side of your blocks.
then you will sew the last three 5 1/2 inch strips together (end to end)to make one long strip. (these will make your top and bottom borders.)
one super cute quilt. And when washed, shrunk and crinkled up mine came out to measure approx 47″ x 47″
