This pattern is from Inga Madsen's book Tatted Animals. I used Perle Cotton Size 8 from Anchor Col. 1345 for the head and body and Col. 1335 for the tail and feathers. The two different coloured threads make this starling a little strange. I really enjoyed tatting the tail.
Inga Madsen explained that she created these designs for a quilted blanket for her grandchild. I may include this in a patchwork blanket. We will see what happens after I tat all the patterns in this book.
