First Nursery Project

I have been working on my first project for our baby's nursery. I decided I wanted to go with a colorful, "little bird" theme, so I've been making little birdies to use in various ways! I might make a mobile similar to this one. The pattern I used was (slightly altered) from this one.

I am considering making a (very easy, beginner) quilt using the same fabrics, and I also want to try and make a bunting banner like this one here, also using these fabrics. Other plans include painting the walls a very pale blue (like Glidden Clear Blue Sky) and creating some art for the walls (love these!). Once we find out if our little egg is pink or blue, I may change the color scheme a little bit (add navy and yellow and leave out the pink if a boy; etc.).

You can't tell from the pictures, but the underbellies of the birds are made out of different fabrics than the tops. The underbelly of each bird is made with the same color fabric, but the other pattern.As always, I love using my Crate and Barrel ruffled cake pedestal... timeless and season-less!
