Life. Love. Quilts.


Project Quilting Completed…


Hey Guys!

I know I have been very quiet these past few days ..but that is because I have been busy creating a square within a square!  May I present to you my entry into Project Quilting ….A  Car Seat Quilt… that has the perfect name of  “A Bird in a Box.”


The size of my quilt is 27 inches by 27 inches.  I would say I have been through a long creative process.  This block started to be a bag for another quilt I am making but I absolutely loved the way the block turned out and decided to give this block a greater purpose.

Here is a picture of the back….


I created the back from scrap I had of the collection.  If you are also doing a Lovely Year of Finishes.   I am making a set of baby items for one of my teachers at school.  This will also be in the set of baby items I am making.  If you notice, there are two ties on the back of the quilt.  These ties are meant to be tied to the handle of the car seat to keep the baby covered.  Isn’t that clever!

Here’s a close up…


I decided to name the quilt ” A Bird in the Box” because I attempted to put one complete sketch of a bird in some of my squares.  Here a close up…


Arn’t they cute.  There is one more thing I have to say…This quilt was made in Atlanta, GA by Me…Kerrie Porter.

I really hope you enjoy my quilt as it is my hope a little girl will one day also!  Until next time, Sew Pretty!
