Yesterday I posted a new quilt top with applique ducks. I have had a few requests for the pattern. I did some looking and I can not find the origin of the pattern. I did not find an example on The Quit Index. I did not find it in Barbara Brackmans Encyclopedia of Applique. I could not find any examples on the internet so the source is unknown. I traced the pattern and here it is.
I have scanned the tracing and made a PDF file if you want to print the pattern at actual size click on the link (( sunbonnet duck )) here.
The applique was done raw edge so no seam allowance is needed, just trace out a template and applique. Follow the picture for the embroidered embellishments.
