Pattern Details

This is on sale for the month of October. It will either be discontinued on November 1st or it will revert to full price. The twitter of birds in the trees and the busy comings and goings of a little birdhouse family make for hours of pleasure. There is something warm and caring about about providing a home for birds in a backyard or near a window. It can become a symbol of the warmth of our human home. The block doesn't have to be part of a quilt. With a pretty border it could easily be turned into a cheerful little wall hanging. Fusible web applique makes the block quick and easy to sew. The pattern includes detailed, illustrated instructions, full size templates for the applique pieces, and two full size layout plans.

When I retired from a lifetime of teaching in 2007, I was worried that I'd quickly get bored. That concern didn't last long at all. I was thrilled to discover that there really is life outside of the classroom. I spend parts of most of my days indulging in my favorite hobbies of quilting and sewing. I started designing patterns as an experiment, and no one was more surprised than I was to find that other people liked my little designs. I'm a teacher at heart, so I do try to write my patterns in such a way that beginning quilters can follow them. I include lots of details, photos, and little informative notes. I make myself easily available to my customers, and I respond to all questions as quickly and as thoroughly as I can. Contact Information: Blog:, Facebook Page:, Email:
