Happy 1st day of May to each of you.  Here is Block #3 and one of my favorites,   I can almost hear little musical notes coming from the birdie! So now I'm thinking of adding a few musical notes to the top of the block.  

This is a fairly simple block & will give you lots of practice with points & curves,  Of course there are some tiny pieces like the beak & the top knot on this little guy that may take a while longer to complete.  It did for me!

Sometimes I'm not to sure of the colors she's using for each bird.  It may be because of the small pictures in the booklet or my eye sight,   so I search for pictures of them online to get a better idea & go from there.   There are usually lots of them to pick from too. 

Can't wait to see what you all have done on yours!

Very nice Patricia Faye. I'm behind on the birds. I did start preparing the first 2 this week. Hopefully by the end of May I will be caught up.

Patricia Faye, great fabrics!  I loved doing this one. I'm actually a bit ahead as it's my "watching TV in the evening" project.

Thanks Janet and Patricia. I also love doing these and will be sorry when I'm finished. I think I'm an addictive person as I'm so fallen in love with needle turn. I've looked at her website but her other applique projects don't grab me as much. These are just sweet. I have a book of teapots and teacups and am considering doing them.

Patricia Faye your block is lovely. I really like your bird with his little red cap. I'd never heard of this bird before. He's beautiful.

I love the red flowers too. Nice work. I hope to work on my block two this weekend. I have a sew in planned tomorrow.

Judy love your bird and the funky fabrics in the flowers and leaves are fabulous. I'm so happy you're enjoying appliqué like you are. It always pleases me when someone takes to hand work of any kind.

Patricia Faye, love your block. I never thought of of looking them up to see other blocks. I'll have to do that.

Judy, Love the colors and your work is just great looking. I'm still on block 2.

I added 3 musical notes to my Green-Tailed Towhee so he is whistling a happy tune!  Here's my revision!
