It's For the Birds Blog Hop

*
Many Thanks to  Mary, our feathered leader
and Madame Samm our fearless coordinator!
This has been yet another fun hop and spring arrived here just in time.
This Hop must have been the kick in the pants it needed!
*
With so much on the go these days I don't know how I managed to get my project completed
ahead of time! I enjoy paper piecing and have found it my go to option for quite a few projects 
with deadlines.
This little fellow is strictly 
"For The Birds"!

This pillow cover has a zipper back and at the moment is perched on our bed,
just to remind us that spring was eminent, eventually.

Fly on over to the rest of the "hoppers" to see what 
ruffles their feathers!

  1. It's a beautiful bird. I tried paper piecing and it ended up a confused mess. I think it requires too much concentration....which I lack. Your bird looks perfect.

  33. Carolyn,
    What a beautiful bird! I love your choice of fabrics. The fabrics just make the bird look so realistic in many ways. I don't have the knack of picking the right the fabrics to make my paper piecing as satisfactory as I would like. An excellent job! I am in awe! I think spring has definitely sprung here! The weather report is calling for 84 degrees by the time the Drillers start the baseball game tonight in Tulsa. The birds will be tweeting and tweeting. Of course, folks will be tweeting and tweeting, too! I'm not into that - lol. Thanks for participating in the hop and being a great inspiration. I hope to see you in another hop very soon.
