Basic Skills Necessary:

  • You should already know how to use a sewing machine

Pattern Description:

A hummingbird is one of the most graceful creatures on earth. This one is hovering elegantly in a summer sky. Stylized vine branches surround him.
This mini quilt is a whole cloth quilt, which means that you cut the front, back and batting all the same size as the finished quilt. The appliques are sewn with the fabric edges raw, exposed. It is designed to fray to the stitches, giving a textured, folk look to the quilt.
The applique and the quilting are done at the same time. There is no binding; the edges are finished by sewing all around and then clipping the edges to fray.

Every step in this quilt was planned to create the most beautiful quilt possible in the most efficient way possible.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Approximately 21x18 inches (53cmx46cm)

Materials:

  • 2 fat quarters (18x21 inches or 45x53 cm) cotton fabric for the front and back
  • 1 fat quarter (18x21 inches or 45x53 cm) cotton flannel fabric for the middle layer (This fabric will show at the clipped edges of the quilt)
  • 1 piece cotton 12x 14 inches (31x35cm) for vine fabric
  • Small cotton pieces for the hummingbird

You Will Also Need:

  • Darning foot or free motion foot accessory for your sewing machine (optional but very useful)
