Show & Tell: More winged friends

Welcome back, welcome back

Show & Tell Thursday's


What's been happening in your world?  Hopefully lots of good things : ).

I have so been enjoying testing these Paper Pieced Bird patterns for uber-talented Juliet.

I didn't have a plan for any of them, and they were put together from fabric that I had on hand, trying as best I could to keep the colours fairly realistic.

After the four tests here (Kakariki, Tui, Wax eye and Tomtit) I started thinking about what to do with them.  Logic dictated a quilt!  More fabric was purchased (if you're familiar with my tastes and style, you can probably guess browns, blacks and grey's are not exactly prolific among my fabric stash...) 5 more blocks completed, the top has been put together and it is currently with a quilter!

Hopefully these guys will have a happy ending!
Have you started something and wondered where to from here after a point?  What was the end result?  Do share!

Looking forward to seeing what you've all been making this week!
Happy Thursday!
