I dived into my scrap bin and found this cute little bird print called Love Birds by Michael Miller. Then I found the aqua print from Washi by Rashida Coleman-Hale. I liked how it echoed the wing shape of the birds and the color was perfect. The grey and white print reminded me of a birdcage - so much fun!
Then I abandoned the scrap idea because it took me way too long to find these three fabrics in my overflowing scrap bin. One day I will organize them by color and make a beautiful scrappy project (or two) but it won't be today. I turned my test block into a cute little pincushion for my sewing table.
Instead, I decided to use a fat eighth bundle of Road 15 by Sweetwater for Moda and I paired it with Kona in Bone.
In order to work even more white into my quilt pattern, I decided to play with the color placement and alternate an A and B block. The scale of this fabric is perfect for these small 5" blocks.
Here are some of my favorite prints. It should surprise no one that I love the aqua prints. The black and white prints in this line are awesome. Aren't the trees and houses cute??
