What You Get

As the sun sets, our little bird relaxes at home. All the instructions and diagrams for constructing this fused art quilt are included. Each month I give away a different free pattern if you order one of my Craftsy patterns. (Please note that if you buy multiple Craftsy patterns during the month, the free pattern would still be the pattern of that month.) I really appreciate your interest in my patterns and hand-dyed fabrics and threads. Sharing with fellow artists makes my day! BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY fuse fabric
