    Paper pieced birds

    For my first paper piecing project, I choose birds! Note to self: there are paper piecing patterns that are easier and that have fewer pieces for a first timer.
    Well all in all I think it is okay for a debut paper pieced, but I am going to tackle something a little more in my comfort zone, if I do it again.

    With the difficulty that you tackled in the quilt I think you have moved on from beginer to advanced! Very nice. Maybe give us some close ups to drool over.

    Looks great from what I can see. The angle of your photo makes it a little difficult. Beautiful colors.

    Note to you: you are right, there are much easier PPing patterns available. Watch out, it is very additive.

    Yep, for a first(or second or third or...) pp project, that's mighty ambitious! But, it paid off because it's also mighty fabulous! I love it! Today must really be "bird day" -- there are so many pictures of bird-related things on the board today. As close as I come? I'm a bird-brain... LOL! You, however, are an ace pp'er!

    I really like your quilt. I do tend to like things that are difficult. However, the most difficult are so appealing to the eye and this quilt is very appealing. What is the pattern? Grace

    Well done! I haven't tried PPing but if I did I'm sure mine would look nothing like birds at all maybe Pteradactyls Lovely colours and fabrics....very pretty indeed.

    WOW, what an ambitious first effort and very, very successful at that! Great colors and I love the single dozing, fat cat block. Thanks for sharing.

    Your quilt looks fabulous
    I've been working on a difficult paper piecing project and then just started Carol Doak's bom and was like wow, this is easy lol. After doing pping projects like that, "regular" block patterns seem like a cake walk!

    Are those Claudias designs? www.claudias-quilts.com She has some awesome bird patterns - among others

    Is this from the Backyard Bird book? I did 4 of those and decided I didn't want to do anymore. You did a great job.

    Wonderful work (play!) PP is catching isn't it? If you ever decide to do another, here is a link to some great patterns:

    Would like a few close-ups of your birds if you are able! Congratulations!
