|Pattern for Paper Bird-on-the-Nest:
from PIECES: A Year in Poems and Quilts by Anna Grossnickle Hines
|Directions for Paper Bird-on-the-Nest:
I framed my bird by cutting out 20 one inch squares and pasting them around the borders. You could make a fancier frame by cutting the squares in half to make triangles and then mixing them so each square is made of two triangles of different colors or patterns. Or you could simply paste your bird onto another piece of colored paper. Another possibility is to make several paper designs and paste them together on a larger sheet of paper to make a paper "quilt". Have fun!
