Welcome to My Birdhouse

Come join me today, while I participate in the Welcome to My House Blog Hop, hosted by Carol at Just Let Me Quilt -


Welcome to My Birdhouse wall hanging by QuiltFabrication



and Welcome to My Birdhouse wall hanging pattern!

The idea for this new modern wall hanging came to me after receiving one of those 'home for sale' postcards in the mail. It was for a newly remodeled Eichler home in the neighborhood, and even though the price was flabbergasting, it was an attractive, modern style home. 

Around here, one either loves Eichler's or hates them - they're not your typical style or constructed house. But, they have a modern, open vibe even if built 60 years ago, and those that are remodeled can be quite stunning.

Thus the modern house idea, which was simplified and evolved into these modern birdhouses,

that are creatively stacked on the pole.

Keeping with the simple, modern lines, the quilting adds to the modern feel without overpowering the quilt.

And if you look closely, each door is a different style,

to add to the interest.

I bet these birds are really happy to live here!

To make your own Welcome to My Birdhouse wall hanging, the pattern is available at both Craftsy and Etsy. With detailed instructions, the birdhouses are suitable for the confident beginner quilter or above.

  9. I've been waiting to see what you've been up to, and I'm not disappointed! I love birds; they are kind of a thing in our family, so this project is just great. I'm pretty sure we have some Eichler homes around here, just down the road actually. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Big bird lover myself! Someday, I'm going to go to Napa where you can handle a falcon - they use them to keep the birds away from the grapes. It would be so awesome to have such a majestic bird on my hand! And thanks for the quilt love!
