Basic Skills Necessary:

Pattern Description:

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

The Rhode Island Red is the state bird of Rhode Island. 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 Rhode Island.
