5 hours later...

I got the book, "Feathered Friends",
by Jette Norregaard Nielsen
for Christmas from my Husband (Thanks Honey!)

Birds are a strong theme in my art plans for 2011.
I decided to  try the seagull pattern.

Oh my!
63 pieces....
7 X 9 inch block...
5 hours!
(making copies, cutting out paper units
cutting fabric, sewing, pulling off paper)

And the result...

(he doesn't have an eye yet)
I like the block, but I am NOT doing another one!

I have another pieced block of a seagull
that is more square and abstract.
I think I will try that one tomorrow.
