Birthday Fabric


Fabric from my girls for a birthday gift made into a quilt.

I have a daughter that quilts among many of her talents, and one day while on the phone I mentioned a fabric I had been looking at.

“I don’t normally go for pinks but this collection by Bari J called Bijoux is amazing.”

She immediately looks it up while still talking to me about quilting.

“That is really cool. I like that also,” she says.

A few months later I received two fat quarter selections of Bijoux from my daughters for my birthday. After squealing with delight that she remembered this collection, and my girls were so thoughtful I immediately decided it would be a quilt. I ordered the necessary fabrics to complete the quilt and started cutting. Except for the backing fabric which I knew I would use because it was too beautiful to cut up.


Beautiful Bari J fabric collection, Bijoux.

The pattern is a combination of a block on the Bari J website and my own design for the balance of the quilt. I have this quilt folded on the end of the guest room king bed. The fabrics are amazing and made a beautiful quilt.
