    They are naming her Birdie

    I was asked to make a quilt for a baby shower. They are expecting a little girl and her name is going to be Birdie. I was told to take the name Birdie and run with it. The growth chart was a panel for that purpose. The quilt top (it has been quilted and mailed) was a mix of 4 patch squares and a bird shape I pulled from one of the prints created and appliqued.

    Darling growth chart. It reminds me of a game I had when my kids were little called Tall Bird, Short Bird.

    One of my good friends in high school was ' Birdie" and she was a great girl. I'll just bet this little Birdie will be too. This is such a cute idea you came up with for her shower. As we Arkies say " you done good girl ".

    But "Birdie" for a given name?
