This Goldfinch block is one of the twenty-eight 8" blocks in my 'Symbols of Our Unity' quilt.

You can purchase one pattern or all twenty-eight to make the entire quilt. One block made into a 'mini-quilt' will fit nicely into the Ackfeld 12" x 14" table stand. Make one for a friend with their state bird.

These blocks can be done with needleturn, fusible, or machine applique. Pick your favorite method.
