Our blue bird of happiness pays a visit to her ladybug friend. All the directions and diagrams needed for creating this fused art quilt are included. Each month I give away a different free pattern if you order one of my Craftsy patterns. (Please note that if you buy multiple Craftsy patterns during the month, the free pattern would still be the pattern of that month.) I really appreciate your interest in my patterns and hand-dyed fabrics and threads. Sharing with fellow artists makes my day! SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 9" x 14"
