Happy Moda BlockHeads 3 Wednesday Block 4 by Jan Patek

Hi everyone! Wednesday has surely come around fast and now it's time for another block for BH3.  This is an applique week with a cute block designed by Jan Patek.

Block 4 Birdhouse

To download and print Jan's block, and to see her tips, please use this link to her blog.

I decided to to make this block 8" finished. I haven't seen the other applique blocks from Jan, so I'll decide on their size at the time.

I love applique. It is harder on my hands than it used to be. I followed Jan's instructions and hand appliqued.  And, I love it!  hmm I see that I have forgotten the eye.  Easily fixed later.
Thank you Jan!

Please check on all our to designers to see what they have made this week. Links are below.

Happy stitching!

Thanks for stopping by!

Until next time,
~ Betsy
