The iconic William Morris “Strawberry Thief” design has been reimagined by Linda Earl in this delightful representation of the naughty bird and the strawberries. The birds and leaves just pop against a dark blue background but the choice is yours. You can go for a more modern minimalist interpretation using solid fabrics or have a light background.
Created using machine appliqué and hand embroidery this project is going to be suitable for the confident quilter. It would be possible if a little fiddly to needle turn the appliqué.
The pattern includes detailed instructions for raw edge appliqué, full size templates and layout diagram.
