I’m liking this a lot better now! There’s no problem seeing his beak… I used a little piece of pink shimmery fabric for the cheek, which I like! (Thanks Leslie! It was perfect!) She also donated the chin and feather fabric! I have them all in process… Our theme this month is “Birds Re-visited”. I designed this block to see if I could do it! Birds are kind of tricky!

    That is one of the best looking hummingbirds I’ve seen. Is the pattern available or is it of your own creation?

      It is my own creation, but I switch the piecing sections around from the original, so I don’t even have the hand drawn original! LOL! The original had seams going through his head, and I decided at the last minute to cut them a different way…
