HOME Block 8, Birdhouse

from 2strings
(7) Name: 'Quilting : HOME Block 8, Birdhouse
HOME Block 8, Birdhouse
HOME Block 8, Birdhouse
HOME Block 8, Birdhouse

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Basic quilting skills, use of fusible web

Pattern Description:

The twitter of birds in the trees and the busy comings and goings of a little birdhouse family make for hours of pleasure. There is something warm and caring about about providing a home for birds in a backyard or near a window. It can become a symbol of the warmth of our human home.

The block doesn't have to be part of a quilt. With a pretty border it could easily be turned into a cheerful little wall hanging.

Fusible web applique makes the block quick and easy to sew.

The pattern includes detailed, illustrated instructions, full size templates for the applique pieces, and two full size layout plans.
