It's Little Birdies.... not Social Media!

I have been "twittering around" lately.... with paper pieced bird patterns, that is!!

Want to see the blocks?

Bird Block 1:  Coloured Finch     design - from  issue 5  (Ap-June 2015 ) Paper Pieciing 1/4 " 
                                                     digital magazine  by  QAD Publishing  { here}

Coloured Finch      made by Susie's Sunroom

Fabrics:       Summersville Spring   Charm Pack by Moda-   scraps
                   Art Gallery Cherie Telegrammes Nuage -   background

I wanted to make this little chubby bird scrappy, and the leftovers from my
Spring Petals Table Topper { Summersville Spring} ( see here  ) were perfect !  

I plan to feature this Finch on the front of a tote bag, using  Brussels Washer Linen Yarn Tied Black.  (see below)

Bird Block 2:     Geometric Bird   Paper Pieced  by Kristy  of Quiet Play   { here }

Geometric Bird        made by Susie's Sunroom

I plan  to add a sash border,and make a pretty  pillow with the little  geometric bird.

You'll want to hop on over to both pattern shops to see all of the patterns these talented designers have made!  I could  get " lost "  in both of them for a year!!
