This black-throated blue warbler applique pattern for the bird lover.
Applique Size - Width: 14" Height: 14" Finished size: Width: 16" Height: 16"
There are 3 available step-by-step applique instructions. You can choose one here.
Please try your local quilt shop for a great resource of fabrics and techniques.
Cut your background fabric to approx. 15”x 15” first. This is the fabric you will put all of the other pieces on top of. Then cut and place the bird and leaves on top of the background.
For a more authentic stained glass effect; cut and build all the pieces on top of a piece of black fabric.
Once your applique pieces are fused to the background, stitch with a straight stitch around each piece with matching thread.
Trim to square, then add a 2” border.
Add batting and backing and quilt as desired.
