More about the birdies!

 This is just a wee mug rug I made lately, from strings.
I made one more orange bird, this one facing the other way.  Although I made up my own pattern, I have discovered a couple sources of patterns for birds, thanks to y'all. 

Lynn at the Patchery Menagery has made a few bird quilts...hers are elegant and just lovely in her studied fabric selections and artistry. The first link is to her pattern, and please take a look at her blog, too!

The next link is to a Craftgossip pattern, which is a free one...I like the little added triangle at the bottom of the bird's breast, so I will be adding that piece to my next birdies.  I would love to make some birdies each month, of different colors!!

Hugs to all, and hope you are having a wonderful day!

Oh how fun! Thank you Julie for the links and the inspiration. Patchery Menagery really is making some wonderful quilts with these birds. I can't wait to see more of your birds. They really brighten the day :-)

Your birdies are wonderful. Thanks for those links. Always nice to have a bit of instruction.

I saw on another blog (Sew Preeti) that the bird pattern came from Block Lotto. They are really cute.

They are in the April 2013 block lotto index
