Birds and Bees Lap Quilt at Sew, Sew Much More

Birds and Bees crosshatch design baby, toddler, lap quilt for girls of any age,

This quilt was quite the labor of love, taking two years and five months to complete.

Confidentially: most of that time it was in a sewing bag waiting for the binding to be handsewn, but it was patient and understanding, and is now quite lovely.

This quilt is crafted from a jelly roll of Tula Pink's Birds and Bees cotton quilting fabrics, with coordinating Kona cotton solids blended in. Bordering the chevron-inspired zigs and zags of color are a few grounding solids.

The binding is a delightful complementary red floral and the backside is mostly apple green Kona cotton, with a strip of in Ikea print for interest. The stitching on the quilt is done 'in the ditch' following the patterns in the quilt.
