The Heron–A Paper Pieced Pattern

Sunrise, Heron, Morning

FROM PHOTO TO PATTERN

Remember this photo from Silent Sunday?

Peggy R has worked her magic on it and created a Paper Pieced Heron for all of us at The Inbox Jaunt!

This gorgeous pattern can be made with only nine colors!  (For those of us who are newbies to paper-piecing, that seems manageable!)

You can download the entire pattern and color chart below. (Use the “back button” to return to The Inbox Jaunt).

The finished size is 7 1/2 x 10 inches as is….but, of course you can enlarge the pattern to suit your needs…

WHEN YOU MAKE THIS PATTERN

I know many of you are going to give Peggy’s patterns a try..when you do, please let us know!  I’m really excited to see these gorgeous patterns come to life!

THANK YOU, PEGGY!

Two things to know about Peggy–she’s tireless AND she loves a challenge…That’s why she’s sharing these gorgeous patterns with us.

 The Easter Sunrise pattern was fabulous, too!  (If you missed it –see HERE)

So join me in thanking her once again:  Thank YOU, Peggy!

Got to run…I’m going to print this off and choose my fabrics!
