Little Bird is here! I have been thinking about the Little Bird pattern since it was just a teensy sketch on graph paper several years ago, and working on it in earnest for a few months. Finally after much refining and testing and editing it is ready, as a PDF pattern for both a single block and a baby quilt.
Fabric-wise this is a fat eighth friendly pattern, and a bit of a skill sampler in that it uses simple patchwork, curve blocks, and applique (for the eyes). I’m calling it an “advanced” pattern but several people have told me that this was their very first time sewing curves, and they did a bang up job. (Putting my own blocks to shame, TBH.) Check out #littlebirdquilt on Instagram to see all of the amazing takes on this pattern.
The pattern is in my Etsy shop (at a special launch price for a limited time). If you make one please share a link in the comments!
