Item details

A little bird sings his song and soars toward the sunshine in this extra cheerful mini rag quilt.
This small quilt is a whole cloth quilt, which means that you cut the front, back and batting all the same size as the finished quilt. The appliques are sewn with the fabric edges raw, exposed. It is designed to fray to the stitches, giving a textured, folk look to the quilt.

The applique and the quilting are done at the same time. There is no binding; the edges are finished by sewing all around and then clipping the edges to fray.

Every step in this quilt was planned to create the most beautiful quilt possible in the most efficient way possible.

-CAN I SELL ITEMS MADE FROM YOUR PATTERNS?

Yes! You are welcome to sell finished items handmade by you locally and online (such as Etsy). Please mention where the pattern came from ( http://www.etsy.com/shop/marylandquilter?ref=si_shop) in your listing. The pattern itself is copyrighted and can only be used by the purchaser and copied for their use. In other words, do not sell or share the pattern.

-WHAT IS FREE-MOTION QUILTING?

Free motion quilting is so much fun and easy with a little practice. You replace the straight stitch foot on any standard sewing machine with a darning or quilting foot.( It has a round circle opening or is sometimes an open half-circle) Then lower the feed dogs (The tread under the foot). Lowering the feed dogs allows you to move the fabric in all directions as you sew. By having the freedom to move the fabric you can make tight turns as you sew-- even sew your name in cursive! In many of my patterns free-motion quilting and attaching the appliques happens at the same time, saving time and giving a beautiful pattern on the back of the quilt.

Have any questions? Contact me I'll be happy to answer them.
