This little wall hanging started one Sunday morning when the little birdie(the original drawing is under the photo tab) was on the cover of our bulletin. I kept thinking how cute he’d be sitting on a flower singing his heart out to welcome the new day. The more I played with the design, the more the bird developed into a realistic looking bluebird.

Surprisingly, one of the hardest things was finding a border design that wouldn’t compete with the applique, think think my friends got really tired of hearing “How do you like this one?”

I hope you enjoy him! All I have to do now is quilt it and he’ll be ready to hang in the kitchen next spring.
