For the Birds

This is what I did with the Bird Fabric and scraps from Patty.

Here is a close up
I need your opinions please. Currently it is 32x48.

Considering that I am out of the bird fabric and have limited pieces of the scraps, what would you do? I was thinking of adding some blocks to either side width ways but am not sure what blocks to use. I thought about trees or flying geese or stars of some sort.

This is something I will sell. My boss is a quilter and she suggested I use 4 blocks as a tablerunner and 2 as pillows. I'm not sure I like that idea.

What would you do?

That's a cool quilt! I have no suggestions, but it looks wonderful! I don't think I'd split it up into pillows and table runner either. I'm sure you or one of these wonderful bloggers will have the perfect solution!

A flying geese border would be perfect - make the geese in light fabrics and use the rest of your scraps for the backgrounds. Great quilt!

Well, I love the bird fabric and the setting you have used.

Do you like applique? Maybe a bird in vines (can be hand or machine blanket-stitched on for no stress).

What about pieced birdhouses in the corners of the border?
