Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Basic applique

Pattern Description:

This pattern is one of the twenty-eight 8" square state bird applique blocks from my quilt 'Symbols of Our Unity'.

The Mountain Bluebird is the state bird of Idaho and Nevada. The pattern contains the layout for the applique and detailed embroidery instructions. Both left and right handed instructions are included for the embroidery.

This 8" pattern is perfect for creating a mini-quilt to fit the Ackfeld 12" x 14" table stand. Make one for that friend who resides in Idaho or Nevada.
