Happy Birds



Everyone in our small group, but me, is making great progress on their Happy Birds quilts. I have been hand apliqueing which is all new to me. Sue machine appliqued raw edge and it looks great.



The others have been making these really cute, but scarey star blocks



Each bird has a different personality - they may be coming to life.....
















I have been preparing EPP hexagons for the first border on my Happy Bird quilt. At least I know how to make hexagons. The other stuff not so much.
I managed to finish and send my hexie swap to my swap partner in Ohio. She requested country colors.

  4. The birds really have their personalities, I love the one that stands cross-legged with a dainty blue tail! They're all very cute in their happy bright colors.

  6. I just love your happy-looking birds. You stitched them beautifully. You're right, it's much faster with the sewing machine. But I personally find hand-stitching quite relaxing. Do you?
    Thank you for participating to my Fabric, Thread and Yarn link party. Have a good day!
