I looked through my patterns and books and found many eagle patterns to choose from. I plan on making two quilts. One from a Barbara Brackman design and one from a Jan Patek pattern.
Hereis Barbara's design that I like. The blocks are large. Thirty-six inches and I don't like handling that much fabric for hand applique. But I have loved this design for quite some time.
And here are some tentative fabric selections. I can't start for another two or three weeks so plenty of time to think about it.
I also am going to participate in a sew-along with Lori of Humble Quilts making Jan Patek's American Revolution flag quilt design.
I have had the eagle cut out for a good while now but had not done any of the needle turn applique stitching.
I do not want to peel off the freezer paper to get a better picture of the eagle fabric. You can see it in the arc piece above it.
I look forward to seeing others create their eagle quilts.
