The 3 Birds Quilt - New Pattern

Ahhh, applique! I love applique. I know a lot of quilters don't, but I'm convinced that it's only because they haven't found a techniques that works for them! If you look around at all the methods available, you WILL find one that works for you! (But I digress!)

3 Birds is an adorable little wall hanging - perfect to cheer up any room (But done in pastels, wouldn't this be great for a baby's room?) But the best thing about this quilt is it's a small (16" x 20") quilt with easy, gentle curves to practice your favorite appliqué technique on! Or, if you are an appliqué queen (you know who you are!) it's a great project to get done quickly!

3 Birds originally appeared
in my book: The Modern Appliqué Workbook.
This version is quilted by Angela Walters

Another fun thing about a quilt this size is you can quilt it yourself! It's no secret that my biggest quilting regret is not learning to quilt as I learned to piece and appliqué. As a result, I send most of my quilts out to be quilted. If I could quilt them myself, I could have so much more pride of ownership (not to mention the money I could save!) So, the yellow 3 Birds version is my first real attempt at quilting an entire quilt. It think it turned out pretty well! To read about my experience quilting this quilt, click here.
