Are you stumped for a wedding or anniversary gift? With this pattern you could easily create the ideal personal gift. Swans mate for life. In the my layout of these two swan appliques, their necks subtly create a heart. Around the border, you could embroider a heartfelt message to mark the event.
There are complete instructions for raw edge machine appliqué using a darning foot, inserting a stuffing-less piping, machine quilting, binding the quilt, and signing your name freehand on the sewing machine. On my website, www.critterpat.com, there are six free how-to videos showing how I make a Critter Pattern Works quilt.
This quilt is 20" high x 21" wide, but your quilt could be any size you like depending on how you add borders, repeat these designs, or combine them with others in our line.
