PDF pattern for 'A murder of crows" block 1 quilt raw edge applique tutorial free motion embroidery


Instant Digital Download

These dark moody blues and damson purples set the tone for this mystical quilt, filled with crows, witches hats and the candles are highlighted by the colours in the patchwork background.

This pattern is for block 1 which measures 12 by 12" (excluding seam allowances) and forms the lower left corner of the quilt. The full set of four patterns result in final quilt measuring 24 by 24". This block contains two candles, leaves, toadstools and a witches hat.

The quilt itself is in my usual style, so it is a patchwork background with raw edge applique sewn with free motion embroidery. You don't need a fancy machine to sew it but your machine needs to be able to do free motion embroidery. The pattern contains basic instructions for the patchwork. I don't go into a lot of detail on patchwork as I am assuming that you know the basics but other than the odd half square triangle, it is all pretty simple.

I use raw edge techniques and the patterns are using those instructions, but I will put in sufficient fabric that you could also use needle turn techniques, but no instructions will be given.

Hopefully that all makes sense, but please don't hesitate to ask if anything is unclear.
