This is another quilt that I've made with the method I explained on page 75 in the latest magazine Crafts'n Things Summer 2013
Instead of a house, I made two flowers for the plate design and used the same bird from the original pattern. I used it as a guide to cut from scrap pieces of fabric fused with wonder under.
Next, I sewed them together with a curve seam.
Then I sewed four pieces of fabric around, also with a curve seam.
I ironed on the birds in place. Sandwiched the quilt with batting and a back fabric. Drew "extra" flowers in between the blocks and outside the blocks on each side. Chose a thin 50 weight thread to sew inside the blocks and a thick 12 weight to sew around the outside. I chose a quilting design from Leah www.thefreemotionquiltproject.
Afterwards I sewed beads for the center of the flowers....
..and french knots for the birds eyes.
