Foundation Piecing - My Little Chickadee

I simply had fun sewing Twigs and Twist's Wonky Birdhouse Pillow Cover which entailed abstract piecing of strips around a central design.  This got me hooked.  I enjoy looking at fabrics that are stitched in a pictorial form.  This lead me to formal foundation piecing.  Of course, I had to come up with my own pattern.  Inspired by a incredible Pinterest pin by Sandy, I designed this little bird.  I modeled it in the form of a chickadee,which is one of my favorite birds, in a nest .  It is not perfect, but I enjoyed the creative process and I now have a coffee mug mini quilt.
