I found a pattern for a bird quilt from an old (September 1977) Quilter's Newsletter Magazine. I love it and want to try it on a small quilt. The design is by Vera Crutter, an award winning needleworker. The birds are ingeniously constructed of bias tape appliqued and embroidered on to a 12 inch block! She originally had nine different patterns. These patterns sold for 35 CENTS each or $2 for the set! WOW! What a bargain from today's standards!
I would like to try this, only I would not use bias tape, but strips of fabrics! Hope this inspires you to try something new! any ideas?
