BluebirdsThe next circle around the center contains 8 bluebirds and 8 posies connected by ribbons. The picture shows one of the bluebirds. I initially considered stitching many pieces for the light blue portions of the wings and tails. Having found these two fabrics which I felt were a great color combination for the birds, I decided instead to use the two fabrics and draw lines suggesting the wing and tail feathers. I used a light box with a paper pattern to draw the lines with fabric marker on all of the pieces. This was much quicker than stitching many pieces, especially since it would have had to be repeated 8 times.
