I made this trivet as a sample for one of the many summertime classes at Fancy Tiger. It's a great project for learning the basics of quilting in a short period of time. Sign up for the class if you want to learn to quilt!
I really like the bird/bird cage fabric and chose to frame it with some bold colors; I also used it for the binding. It is a tribute fabric to 1950's textile artist Tammis Keefe by Michael Miller Fabrics.
