Last summer, I was shopping at a thrift store and found a Paula Dean "Coupon Organizer" with a darling bird design on the front. I bought it because I loved the combination of colors and textures. I simply had to use it as a model for a project. But what?
Over the course of last school year, the project slowly took form. I decided to make a baby quilt with an applique bird design on it. Not knowing at the time that I would be creating a blog, I didn't take any "during" photos for a tutorial. But now that I finally finished it (after nearly a year of off-and-on work!), I want to share the final product.
