    • Description

    Make the striking red and black version of this heron or choose the softer setting of a sunset background. This Wading Heron can be made beautifully either way - the pattern includes templates for both a heavier black-edged heron and a softer satin stitch look. It also includes three border options along with various size options. Make the full version 25" x 12" or either of the smaller versions of 12" x 14" or 12" square.

    Pattern includes full-sized templates for both applique versions and quilting (cattail design and water ripples) with other suggested quilting ideas.
