Patterns with Bias Tape
The designs were intended to embellish aprons and little girl's dresses, dishcloths, curtains, and under picture frames.
A more modern approach might be to use these in quilt squares.
This is a vintage Kate Marchbanks mailorder pattern, with a rooster, sunflower, and Sunbonnet Sam.
Details are added with rickrack and embroidery.
Here's a detail of the rooster's color chart
This Alice Brooks pattern has a nest with birds--one of the nicest patterns for a bird that I've seen.
Also a train, iris, watering can, and butterfly.
This Kate Marchbanks pattern of bird motifs would be perfect on a quilt.
I envision this on a quilt along with the vintage embroidery patterns for state birds.
I posted about another bias tape bird pattern previously. See the post here.
And another here.
Or you could do state flowers, along with these Kate Marchbanks bias tape floral motifs.
