This Blue Bird was originally designed by my daughter. She drew me a picture and asked that I make it into a quilt. Once I cut it out she sat at the machine and sewed her first Counted Quilt.

Sizes: Wall 24"x28", Crib 36"x42", and Lap 48"x56". Border the lap and put it on a twin bed.

 

Skill Level: Beginner The pattern lists fabric yardage, then uses tables to show the number of strips to cut and the number of pieces to cut from those strips. The entire top is then sewn using straight 1/4" seams. The shaping is done with quick corner triangles also called the snowball method. There are some instructional videos on youtube. Just search Counted Quilts Dog instruction.

 

Selecting Fabrics: Due to the fact that the pattern pieces may be sewn both horizontally and vertically to make the picture we recommend using non-directional fabric.

Email Pattern Option: The pattern and it's cover in PDF format will be emailed to the register email address (unless you give another alternate address) from lisa@countedquilts.com If you do receive the pattern check in your spam folder. If it is not there within 2 business day please contact me.
