Bald Eagle

The Bald Eagle is the center block for my quilt “Petals Wings and Other Things” and Measures 20” X 30”. The Eagle sits in a unique dimensional nest and is surrounded by 3-D Appli-bonded leaves. You will be amazed how fast and easy this block is. I’m sure you won’t stop there, you’ll want to do the rest of the quilt.

Size: 20" x 30"
Time to Complete: 5 - 6 hours
