Blue bird of Sunshine - Applique style!

I love Bluebirds! They make me smile!
Not sure why ... maybe it's because they are ... blue!
And with winter coming to New England I definately need
my little Bluebird of Sunshine

My brother-in-law takes Fabulous photo's
and this photo of his
was the inspiration for my applique Bluebird below.
Last spring I took an applique class from Marie Lage
(she is fabulous) and I have finally (almost) finish my little Bluebird
(except for his feet!)

Not sure what I'm going to do with him now, or how I'm going to quilt him ...
Maybe just leave him as a mini quilt for my sewing room.
That way I'll have happiness and sunshine all year round,
even during a freezing snowy New England winter!!
