A bright red bird sings as it enjoys the day. This baby bird is a special woodland creature to have appliqued on a quilt or pillow.The pattern as sewn in the picture uses raw edge applique which frays when washed. This results in a rustic, folk look to the quilt. The red bird including the dark blue surround measures 5 x 11 inches (13 x 28 cm). The pattern is full size and can be used with fabric, felt, or paper. Step by step directions are included to make a Red Bird quilt block. The block directions included in this pattern are different from the El's Super Duper Animal Quilt so if you want to make that quilt, you should purchase the complete quilt pattern instead.There are 6 different animal blocks in this project with 3 repeating animals to make 9 blocks total. The entire quilt pattern with all 9 blocks is also available and the other 5 animal patterns can be purchased separately.
