Bob the Blue Macaw

The June Zoo Animal Quilt Along features a Blue Macaw (I'm running just a little behind as usual).
I have a love/hate thing for paper piecing.  Well hate is a bit too strong a word, --I guess it's more like anxiety while working on the paper pieced blocks, but when I get them finished I feel exhilarated!
 Speaking of Blue Macaws...
I just found my camera from when we went to Hawaii last year and got to relive our vacation a bit while seeing the photos for the first time.  I found one of Bob and figured he should be a guest on the blog.

And here's the growing menagerie!
You can still download the last 3 animals for July, August, and September (Koala bear, Monkey, and Lion) from Kristy's blog Quiet Play for free (and the others are just $3.00)

Your Macaw looks great. However, only the current pattern is free on Quiet Play's website via her Etsy or Payhip store.

Such a lovely bird...he's turned out really well, and looks great with all the other blocks x

I love meeting your Bob and the real Bob! Your Zoo Animal blocks are really beautiful! I think your paper piecing skills are excellent!
