The Love Bird FPP quilt block pdf pattern includes two finished block sizes: 6″ and 10″.

The pdf INSTRUCTIONS feature:

:: Coloured illustration of the block
:: Blank diagram and key for colouring and/or planning fabric placement
:: Diagrams for joining the FPP sections, including where it’s important to match seams (look out for the green circles)
:: Guidance on printing the pattern pieces the correct size


:: Digitally drawn pattern pieces
:: 1/4″ seam allowances on all sections
:: Reversed so you create a block that looks exactly as the illustration
:: Coloured and labelled to make construction as easy as possible
:: Laid out to print on A4 or Letter paper

There is one larger section of the 10″ version of the block that will need to be joined together before starting to sew. See page 2 of instructions for details).

This pattern is for people that are familiar with Foundation Paper Piecing. This pattern features the same block in two different sizes. The 10″ version is definitely the easier of the two as the pieces are larger in size, but it is a challenging block.

In the 10″ version there are quite a few smaller pieces around the eye section. A simpler version of this section has been supplied on page 6 of the Tiled Pattern Pieces. If you decide to use this alternative section you will need to applique an eye or use a small button.

The 6″ version of the Love Bird has been simplified in a few places (top of the head and the tail) to make the piecing easier. The 6″ block is still more challenging and you will benefit from the use of an ‘add an eighth’ ruler.

Regardless of size chosen, there are four seams to match when joining sections (refer to green circles on page 4 of the instructions).
