One Wonderful Wednesday Flower

Building on last week's basting, I made this flower:


Did you see that was outside in the sunshine? Yay! It's mid-50s and sunny today! Yes, I had to piece the fabric to get that sixth bird, but that's alright with me. In the whole quilt it may not show up much, and even if it does, so what? It is what it is.
I bought these last week to make more hexagons:


The two with white backgrounds are also for another project. I will have to see how well they work for the hexagons, but the red one with chicks is only for the hexagons. Linking with One Flower Wednesday.

LOVE the little bluebirds!! So cute. I didn't see the pieced hexie until you pointed it out, so I'm sure it will not show at all in a finished quilt. Wendy x
