I recently completed this 27 x 37-inch baby quilt using the "Housing Boom" panel from Tracy Lizotte's Beautiful Birds collection for Elizabeth's Studio LLC Patt #4319 (2016) Available on Amazon.

The 2-inch sashing is white-on-white, and cornerstones are fussy-cut from the overall bird-print #4310 in the same collection. 

Binding is also cut from the overall bird print, #4310. Since it is a baby quilt that will be laundered frequently, I used machine stitching to secure the binding. 

Quilting is also machine stitched following piecing lines.

Note: The individual birdhouses are not printed square, and so care must be taken to square up each birdhouse and not simply add one-quarter-inch to each side of the printed image.
