This is the quilt that single-handedly stalled my "quilting-life" per say. ;)
(along with a now almost 2 year old, but then newborn baby!)
...I started piecing the blocks for this quilt before Noah was born. It's modeled after one of my favorite quilts - the sunshine squares quilt that I made to coordinate with Noah's nursery.
I made it for one of my closest friends - her little girl was born about 4 months after Noah was - and she loved Noah's sunshine squares, and wanted something similar - and had decorated her baby's nursery with a pink & green & aqua color scheme + cutie PBK birdie bedding --> and thus "Birds & Bikes" was born.
...The backing is just pieced chunks of fabric - including the pink Heather Ross bikes that I adore (long ago out of print!).
I'm not exactly sure what happened, but it somehow took me a year and a half to complete. ha. And so I dropped it off at her house - a little bit late(!) - last month.
Hoping she still enjoys it and it can "stretch" it's lifespan into a toddler quilt of some kind.
