Full Sized Templates Included in This Free Tutorial!
Brighten up gray winter days with this cute little red bird and his snowflake. This is a very simple and quick project, yet it will make an impact wherever you display it.
The designer, Wendy Butler Burns, designed this quilt to show off her Texture Magic technique (learn more in the Quilters Newsletter December/January 2014 issue). But you can skip that entirely and sew this up as you would any applique quilt.
A bit of black hand or machine embroidery provides the details. You could also cut a wing shape from a contrasting red fabric to applique on the body.
The finished quilt is 10 1/2″ x 12 1/2″. Full size templates for fusible applique are provided in the free tutorial.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
