What could be cuter than these little birds set amongst the natural elements of winter?! Chickadees & Berries by Jackie Robinson features six chickadees - plus a bonus redwork bird. A holly leaf, berries, paisleys and a pine cone round out this adorable design collection.
Instructions for making this beautiful Chickadees & Berries Modern Quilt are included with the collection.
Jackie Robinson is an accomplished quilter and teacher having been involved with quilting and teaching for many years. She owns Animas Quilts Publishing, which features her quilt designs in books and patterns. Recently, she added fabric designs. Jackie says that designing fabrics seemed the natural thing to do. She was dreaming about quilt patterns and dreaming of the fabrics for them, and that led to designing fabrics.
Her latest fabric line, Chickadees & Berries, is a wonderful Benartex fabric collection that was inspired by a special friend who repeatedly told Jackie what a great subject they would be. OESD has transformed this fabric into a beautifully stitched compilation of charming chickadees and other seasonal elements. This embroidery collection features six different styles of chickadees, different types of leaves and branches, a few berries, a pinecone, paisley designs, and a few outline quilting designs.
When asked why she decided to use Chickadees & Berries for machine embroidery, Jackie stated “I wanted individual Chickadees and their environment parts, without busy backgrounds. They are wonderful, don’t you agree?” Yes, we do agree! These feathered friends are so realistic – and full of life.
Jackie says, “I think they are precious, and think they have winter decorating appeal.” Jackie envisions the Chickadees & Berries design collection being stitched for “quilts, of course”, but other inspirational ideas include bags, ornaments, table runners and table toppers. This collection can be used all winter long, not just for the Christmas season. The Chickadees & Berries Modern Quilt uses these fabulous designs. The complete and detailed instructions are included in the Chickadees & Berries by Jackie Robinson #80059 embroidery collection.
Jackie has designed many quilt patterns and other fabric lines with Benartex. You can see her patterns and fabrics at her website
