“Birds in the Air” is a patchwork block made using your embroidery machine. This block utilizes appliqué, reverse appliqué and flip-and-sew methods – a bit of it all so to speak!
Barbara Brackman shares the history of this block on her blog.
What can I do with the “Birds in the Air” block?
All the blocks in the 52 blocks series can be stitched together to create a sampler quilt. You can also use them for other projects like bags, motifs on clothing and home decor items.
Instructions and sizes
I have included clear instructions with photographs to guide you through the process of making “Birds in the Air”. It is only available for the 5×7″ hoop, the final block measures 5×5″. Not all the designs in this series will work well as a larger format, so for consistency and to maintain the dainty aspect of some of the blocks, I’m keeping it to 5×5″.
All the available stitch files are provided in a single download. Remember that Bernina machines will read the EXP file type, no fiddling with conversions!
