A Bird in Hand: Folk Art Projects Inspired by Our Feathered Friends

Feathered friends take fanciful flight in this diverse collection of 21 projects inspired by the timeless charm of folk art. Whether you love hand appliqué, rug hooking, piecework, or cross stitch, Liberty Star designer Renée Plains offers something for every quilter in this book. Included are six avian-embellished appliqué quilts and three pieced quilts with bird-themed blocks.

For those who enjoy making smaller scale projects such as pincushions, the book also features eight vintage-style sewing accessories ranging from pinkeeps to sewing pockets – perfect for your sewing room or gifts for fellow sewers. And Renée has also designed four additional whimsical accents – a pillow and hooked rug for the home as well as a casual tote and notebook cover to take along when you’re on the go.

She also shares her favorite appliqué techniques and clever tips for making some of the projects go smoothly.
