Birds are so wonderful to watch... especially from the time they build a nest to seeing baby birds arrive. The applique on the front of our quilt is cotton. However, how wonderful would it be to use wool or flannel as a change! Our current fabric selections give a warm "fall" appearance. Try your hand at picking out soft pastel colors and giving it a spring appearance. Change the blackbird to a robin by switching the black fabric to brown and adding a red breast! The flowers can be easily switched to pastel colors. The center of each flower is embellished with a large flat button. Switch these out with wool centers!
