Birdie Rag Quilt

Month of gift making project 4: Birdie rag quilt for an adorable little girl who'll be ONE in a few months (where has the time gone???)

Inspiration for this project came from this Wrap Them in Love Rag Quilt Tutorial.).  After seeing that I knew I just had to try my hand at a making rag quilt!  The other day I found the perfect fabric for this project at Mill Outlet Fabric Shop (my local fabric store).  I LOVE that place!

This type of quilt is made by piecing together squares with the seam facing up.  Then you clip the seams so that it looks like fringe.  After washing and drying the quilt, the fringe unravels and frays and gets messy.  So, without further ado...

I LOVE this fabric and am tempted to make one of these for myself!
