Timber! started as a personal project for my sweet nephew. He is growing up so fast and has already graduated to a twin sized bed! His new woodland themed room obviously needed a matching quilt, so Aunt Ooo-Ooo to the rescue! (Side note: I’ll be very sad when he learns to say Aunt Rachel).
I wanted to keep it simple so that this quilt could grow up with him for a long time. A friendly bear cub and a sweet little songbird are the center of attention, surrounded by a beautiful forest of white birch trees. Nothing could be more simple and nothing can spark the imagination like this!
The best part about this quilt: you can add or take away as you’d like. For a really modern look and a grown up version, skip the appliqué animals and highlight the simple beauty of the birch trees or add your own special creatures!
Here’s some of the sweet details…
Since this quilt includes so much appliqué, which is exciting for some and dreadful for others, I decided to make an easy piecing option for a faster result! You can piece the trees, as shown above, or use a solid fabric, as shown below.
