TBT: Bird's Eye Quilt

I'm back with another Throw Back Thursday quilt. This quilt is one that started the quilting obsession for me. I learned to sew in 4-H as a child but didn't start quilting until I took a class featuring Eleanor Burns' rotary strip cutting technique back in the early 90's. This quilt also became my first official UFO as I tucked it away after the class with it only half finished and forgot about it.

Nearly 15 years later, I dug it out and finished it to give to my daughter as a housewarming gift in 2007. It took several years to finally finish my first 'quilt in a day' quilt. Thank goodness they don't all take me that long!
