The Bird Town quilt is my tribute to the birds that sing outside my studio window all day. Sewing this quilt is a breeze because all the blocks are made with your embroidery machine.
We use multiple techniques to create this masterpiece. Embroidery, appliqué, and patchwork in one project to make a gorgeous wall hanging. Aren’t the birds adorable with their big eyes? The blocks combine to create the broken dishes and flying geese patchwork blocks that you can see on the quilt.
Why is it so easy to make this quilt?
Every block is the same size, you won’t be doing any measurements until you square up the block.
The set includes 12 blocks that create a quilt top measuring approximately 35 x 36″. This measurement includes a 3″ border all around. Every block has a combination of appliqué and embroidery, and some include patchwork in the hoop. Patchwork blocks included in this set are:
- Broken dishes
- Flying geese
- Variable star
- Log cabin
