Kea 12 inch Paper Pieced Pattern

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • You should already know how to foundation paper piece

Pattern Description:

This pattern is the third pattern available in my series of New Zealand Native Birds.

The Kea is an alpine parrot that lives in New Zealand's Southern Alps. It is a cheeky bird- I hope that this pattern captures some of that personality!

Feel free to interpret the pattern whatever way that you want. I will not be in the least offended if you decide to turn it into a brightly coloured parrot that squawks "Pretty Polly!"

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • This pattern makes up a 12 inch finished block or a 12.5 inch unfinished block, but formulas for resizing the block are included in the pattern
