Bernardine Hine loves to design quilted wall hanging patterns featuring Australian birds. This Eastern Spinebill quilted wall hanging pattern is hand painted, embellished with applique and free-motion quilted. This would be a good start to create a series of Australian bird wall hangings yourself.
Full materials list included in instructions
Detailed step-by-step instructions, colour photographs and clear diagrams take you through the each step of this quilted wall hanging pattern.
Pattern sheet is included with templates for all of the bird and applique shapes, ready for tracing.
Instructions are provided for raw edge machine blanket-stitch applique using fusible web, but you can adapt them to your preferred applique technique.
You could use a variety of fabrics to make this quilted cushion pattern even more visually interesting. A perfect time to use the stash!
Quilt as desired. Use free-motion quilting technique by first starting your quilting with stitching the bird's body and the patch of brown on its throat. Bernardine stitched a series of long narrow zigzag lines.
This project is recommended for an advanced crafter who would like to extend their quilting skills.
