Love that bird fabric and this will be so sweet and congrats to your neighbors!!
I've always wanted to make one of these too! That little birdie fabric is perfect! Other fabrics in the stack are flannel? Can't wait to see how this turns out.
Rebecca Yes, other other fabrics are flannel, they are supposed to fray and create a chenille effect. I will find out this week if they really do. Fingers crossed!
Qchandmade Oh my gosh, I have been wanting to learn to do this style of quilt. I love, love, love it. Thanks so much for the tutorial. Oh and did I say I love it....
Will be stalking for a fresh out of the dryer pic! This is looking so, so cute!
This is just so cute...I will be stalking as well to see that final picture.
This is soooo cute.
I LOVE how this turned out. Fantastic baby baby gift. I'm going to have to figure out who I can make one of these for.
Love the quilt all folded and tied with a ribbon. Nice picture for a beautiful baby blanket. I think going for the smaller size is a good call. That ways they can easily use it for the car seat and stroller. I've seen the rotary cutters for chenille but have yet to try it. Is it messy like minky?
Terryt1955 It actually wasn't too messy, the slash cutter got clogged up a few times, but no mess on the floor. The worst was the lint trap in the dryer, it looked like pink cotton candy on the screen!
I just love this but it looks complicated is it?
True Not at all. It took me maybe six hours once I got started. Just lots and lots of straight line sewing, I used up a spool and a half of thread.
Qchandmade another question could you make this with the top piece (the non flannel) piece being more than one piece of fabric sewn together? I ask as I may have some fabric left from a baby quilt I am making and this may be a cute gift to make from it and throw in but I doubt I will have one piece that is a 36" square left but maybe able to create one sewing some pieces together in some simple way?
True you might be able to do it with flat felled seams if you are very careful while cutting your flannel, otherwise I think ou might catch the seams. Plus you would see the raw edges between your rows of chenille.
Another idea might be to piece the back and then add a layer of solid fabric between the flannel and the top. Just be sure to only slash the flannel!
