    Paper Pieced Bluebird

    Here is a bluebird I made this afternoon. This is one of the more challenging blocks I've done.

    Hard as it was, looks like you did it well. Great job and pretty block. What will it be when done?

    beautiful...I recently did a couple of paper-pieced bluebirds---much simpler, coloring book style. Mine is cute, but yours is really lovely.

    Your bluebird came out really nice - where did you get the pattern from? I'm sure there will be some that might want to start on a bird quilt after seeing yours...

    Looks like the feet were a challenge, but it is fabulous.

    It was one of the most challenging PP blocks I've done, but you can do it.
