Bluebird of Happiness


My sewing room is too cold to work in right now, but I found this challenge irresistible. So I decided to make "something blue" by just using cutting and fusing. I used fabrics from my bag of blue scraps, and there are about 40 different fabrics in the feathers. 

Once it warms up enough for me to get to my sewing machine, I will do some quilting on the bird and in the background. The finished size will be about 12" x 12"

What a fantastic idea. The variety of fabrics really shows the 'blue style'.

Great fun, great fabrics, including the background. I like the one little bit of another color in the background sky.

Nice job combining the patterned fabrics for the bird. Surely a blue bird of happiness!

this appears to have been very painstaking work. very neat use of colour,and it's always a bonus to be able to use scraps. A well balanced design.

The lovely textures and lovely shape make a very nice piece. I would love to see it when it is finished.
