Quilt Market Sewing: Birch Fabrics
Birch Fabrics is still one of my favorite companies to sew for, always featuring clever designs, beautiful color schemes, and the nicest people. Most of my Market sewing for them this time was done with the new Charley Harper line, Nurture. This nine patch baby quilt would be perfect for a little boy's nursery.
Here's a close up of those great prints. I love that bottom right block the most. Those colors are just perfect!
I pieced together leftover fabrics and a cheater print for the backing.
There was one extra nine patch block leftover from my original planning stages. I decided that it would make a fun little pillow to go with the quilt.
This owl fabric on the back is adorable, isn't it?
The Nurture canvas is just right for bags. I had a lot of fun fussy cutting this giraffe print for my Malibu Satchel pattern.
The feather prints are fantastic basics. I even cut a little piece of canvas selvage for a makeshift label instead of a pocket on this version of the bag.
They asked me to make one more Malibu Satchel out of prints from the new Serengeti collection by Jay-Cyn Designs. All those colors look so happy together...
I've been absolutely delighted to see the stunning booth that the Birch crew is putting together. Be sure to stop by their Instagram account @birchfabrics to get a peek!
