Pattern Description:

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

The Morepork (or Ruru) is New Zealand's only surviving native owl.

I'll be honest, in its original form, this pattern could be regarded as pretty challenging. It has some teeny tiny pieces in the eye BUT don't worry! I have included a suggestion as to how those with a bit less paper piecing confidence can still successfully attack this block- I hope you do!

A slight adjustment was made to this pattern on 25 December 2013

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
