Birds in the Air is a very traditional quilt block that dates back to the mid 19th century/Civil War Era quilts. The graphic nature of the pattern caught my eye, and I thought I'd give it a go for my next baby quilt project. I chose two equally graphic printed fabrics that I had leftover from my Sea Glass Quilt and paired each with a crisp white for added contrast.
I struggled with the decision on what to use for my backing fabric -- I wanted to keep the quilt gender neutral, which narrowed my choices for fabrics greatly. I finally decided on a linen cotton fabric, that, in the end, I think is just gorgeous for this quilt! I also used it for the binding.
I am very happy with how this 'Birds In The Air' quilt turned out!
