I completed the red bird as mentioned in my previous posting. This time I constructed the beak from a separate unit and attached it pretty much as you would a hanging loop.
I like this look and it was so much easier than my first method. However, check out Susie's blog as she paper-pieced her yellow beak in place and it looks perfect. Of course the pair of us are just being pedantic as this bird would look gorgeous if the beak was in the same fabric as the main body - exactly as the pattern states.
I can't wait to see how your bird has turned out so please post to the Flickr group once it is finished.
Until next time ......
