Free pattern is no longer available.
Here are the particulars; The quilt is called Vicksburg and it is a 10 part program. Nine of those are applique and one is pieced. The blocks are all 12" finished and set on point. I use the needleturn method but it could easily be done by machine or fused if you prefer. Here's the challenge part. I challenge you to use only fabric or scraps from your stash. Applique is a good way to use up small or odd shaped pieces. I figure if you use it off your shelf it is free, making this truly a FREE BOM. I have a ton of 1800s that I haven't been working with so that is what I will make mine from. Don't be afraid of scrappy backgrounds. They make it more interesting.
This eagle is block one. The template wouldn't fit on one page so you will have to print both pages and butt them together. When you click the link it will take you to my scribd page with the templates. You can either print or download and save for later. So, let's get started sewing.
