Cheeper by The Dozen
by Debby Kratovil
Birdhouses are a very popular theme for quilters who love to paper piece. You will find 12 blocks in various sizes in each set. For those patterns that are pieced in more than one section, cut apart the pattern where indicated by arrow(s) and be sure to add a 1/4" seam allowance. Some patterns call for an additional appliqué piece (usually the circular door opening or perch). This is added last: use your favorite method of appliqué - hand or machine. Of course, buttons make quick and wonderful substitutes for fabric appliqué!
As is true in all paper piecing, the pattern is the mirror image of the finished work since all sewing is done on the printed side of the paper. Most patterns are symmetrical and the piecing is the same front to back.
