Bluebird of Happiness
Bluebird of Happiness is a Pat Sloan design. I must say I thoroughly enjoyed making this whimsical wall hanging. It started out as a practice piece to learn how to needle turn applique. I found Pat's pattern in one of my quilting magazines and just pulled fabrics from my stash. The grid in the backyard is one half inch and the border has leaves quilted into it.
I think it is hilarious that my practice piece turned out to be my favorite project. It now hangs in my foyer and each day that I pass it I take a moment to enjoy it.
