Free Applique Pattern – Buzz the Bird

Buzz - a free bird applique pattern from Shiny Happy WorldThe Bird Quilt pattern had thirteen different applique birds in it.

I usually do twelve, but this time I added one more because I wanted to balance out right, left and forward facing birds.

So I decided to make one of the blocks available as a free pattern – and I let you all choose which one would be free!

Thanks so much to everyone who voted!

The winner was Buzz, this cardinal-ish bird. :-)

So here’s the link to download the free pattern!

What can you do with just one block pattern? Tons of things!

Check out this page I’ve been slowly building – 100 Things to Do with an Applique Pattern. :-)

Have fun! And send me a photo of what you make! You can email it to me at blockhead[at]wendigratz[dot]com or post it to the Shiny Happy World Facebook page.

      Thanks, Other Wendy! :-)

  1. I like this wee birdy – I drafted templates for her today and got her cut out – I hope to finish a very simple project tonight :)
