My mom made this beautiful Jaybird Quilts Park Bench BOM quilt from a Missouri Star Quilt Company kit and I wanted to share it since she isn’t online! After spending several weeks staying in her log cabin snuggled under her quilts I took some photos of my favorites; this one and then this masterpiece of an EPP hexie quilt. It’s funny, they are complete opposites in terms of process; that quilt was completely improvised, mainly sewn by hand, and all scraps whereas this one was a complete kit, with everything included and spelled out.

This is the first time I’ve seen low volume fabrics quilted in person, subtle isn’t normally my first pick of colors but I can see how it makes everything else really pop! The pattern showcases 8 unique blocks that utilize the templates that Jaybird Quilts designed: Sidekick* and Hex N More rulers.
If you want to sew this modern pastel quilt for yourself, you can order the Jaybird Quilts pattern* here by itself, or you can get the full kit at Missouri Star Quilt Company here. It’s a twin size, but seemed bigger to me.
I think this coral backing fabric is so cheery and unexpected, I love it with the buttery yellow.
Aren’t those colors rich? She has some magical quilting wizard local to her who long-arms them for dirt cheap. I still have never had anything machine quilted, it both appeals to me and feels like it would be cheating! I can’t remember the specific line on this fabric but it is designed by Carolyn Friedlander*.
I just love this quilt, it’s not at all my normal color scheme but it’s perfect for my Mom’s house. You can pin it for later, here!
