Deciding On A Eagle Pattern

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.

  1. They are both beautiful quilt designs...will be fun to watch as yours come together :)

  2. great patterns and fabrics

  3. The design shows lots of promise. I can't wait to see what you do with it.

  4. I think it will be a smashing quill!

  5. good choices - how about shrinking Barbara Brackman's blocks to about 20"?

  6. I'm a fan of both! I have one of Jan Patek's eagles on my bucket list, but not for this challenge.

  7. Love this Karen, I love both designers too.
