Bird Haven – Another Old Project Complete

On the 7th of April, 2012 I purchased the “Bird Haven” quilt kit by Denise Sheehan and Sophia Pearce. I just loved the design and especially the fabric, I can’t find the name of the person that designed the fabric (if you do know please leave a comment at the bottom), but it just holds the whole thing together, there are so many different fabrics in this quilt and all of them complement each other.  From memory I started it the same weekend I purchased the kit, but once I got into it, I realised how much was involved in doing all the little bits, the cutting of very small pieces of applique.  I was good though and did the quilt in the order the pattern suggested.

I think this is probably the hardest piecing of a quilt I have done so far.  But after 3 years I am very happy to have finished it.  I am not going to quilt this myself but send it off to the lovely ladies at Busy Bee Quilt Shop.  I think this piece really does need to be done by a long arm.
