Susan White's "Bird in Hand"

Susan White of Topeka, Kansas made these ornaments for her Quilters Knot friends. She used felt, selvages, applique flowers, and some fluff on top of their heads! I like that black blanket stitch too. What cheery gifts. Susan got the idea from http://retro-mama.blogspot.com/ (10/27/09 post).

Do you know there is a town in Pennsylvania called "Bird in Hand?" Here are some more: Hospital, Foot of Ten, King of Prussia, Bath Addition, Congo, Two Lick, Library, Intercourse, Japan, Of, and Scalp Level. Okaay. Hello to our friends in Pennsylvania!

Hello from Wellsboro, PA (not a very exciting name, but in PA anyway)!

The selvages really brighten up these birds... so cool to turn a strip of waste fabric edge into a beautiful project.

I used to live in Blue BELL; I thought that was a mistake in the article. You'd think some names would reduce property values!
