a little birdie

This is a bit of my bird for the Heart's Desire free BOM by Esther Aliu.  I was trying to make him look like an oriole, but within the confines of the fabrics I had chosen for this project.  Why an oriole?..Our state bird is the oriole, as well as the baseball team.  He's not as bright as the real thing, but his colors will work well with the other portions of the quilt.

This is a test...only a test....:)) my little tryout for the first border in the same quilt.  There are four of the half circles in a set of four borders.

Love all your fabrics! That fabric for those border half cicles is perfect! Great job.

Can't wait to see more.
