Using the Spring Chick block from the Spring Fever pattern set, I made a quick sandwich of batting and backing fabric and some outline quilting on the machine. I then trimmed the block to the original square, folded it in half lengthways and drew a half egg shape free hand. I cut through the double folded layer to create the egg shape. Then stitched ⅛" from the edge to secure the layers and finished with single bias binding, 1 ½" wide and included a loop. The Spring Chick can be found in the Sew-Ichigo pattern set which includes lots of other birds as well as tall and short tulips and the same patterns are also available singularly.
Find the patterns in the Sew-Ichigo Payhip and Craftsy and Etsy shops. All the designs are foundation paper pieced.
