The Katie Bird pattern is fun for showing off pretty prints since it is simple and not too busy. But is also adds some character that a simple square pillow can’t possible offer! I hope you will try it out sometime 🙂When you use nice high quality fabrics like these from the Flutter & Float line, you don’t need to necessarily add the extra layer of interfacing/ flannel that the pattern calls for. I also reduced the size the 90% (because I can fit them into a standard box for shipping more easily!) and instead of zig zag stitching on the wings, I sew them right sides together with a piece of white fabric and turned it right side out. This is an extra step but gives the wing a more finished look which I like when combining 2 prints like this.
These cuties will be in the Blend Fabrics booth at the Quilt show this spring. Let me know if you find them there! I would love to see a photo of the display!
