Chubby Chicks Quilt Top

So far this quilt has been surprise.  I am making it for Hilkka’s baby girl.  So she has not seen the pattern or fabric.   I thought they wouldn’t mind a peek at my progress.   Although, the picture does not really bring out the real colors of the fabric.  It will have to do for now.

Benton calls it the “birdie” quilt.

I have to sew a couple of borders on and the top will be complete.  Then I have to figure out how to quilt it.   I picked this pattern because I thought it was adorable, not thinking about whether it suited my skills or not.  I’m pretty much a beginner quilter and this was my first foray in triangles and pinwheel blocks.  I think it is coming together well, but it has it’s quirks.

I hope I can finish it in the next few weeks.  I’ll share it again then.
