Tree Bird Hop, Day 2 - Happy Birds

This is Day Two of the Tree Bird Hop. I'm so glad to participate (my day is March 23) and I am sharing one of my own bird projects each day as I also share the list of daily bloggers.

Today I want to share with you a lovely little block you've seen before - and the pattern is FREE! This is my Blue Bird of Happiness and I use it when I teach my free motion quilting classes.

Blue Bird of Happiness
I designed this a few years ago for another blog hop. Simple applique to feature a new fabric collection by Windham. It has a 9" center for the bird and the outer strips are 2", finishing to 1-1/2". So, if you do the math right, it's a 12" block! (You didn't have to do the math; I did it for you.)

You can have this Blue Bird of Happiness free pattern by clicking the link. But, I hope that you'll first go visit our Day 2 bloggers to see how they've interpreted this Tree Bird challenge.

Come back tomorrow for another one of my bird quilts and a new list of fabulous ideas from the Day 3 Bloggers.
