Row by Row Appliqué Step-by-Step: Eagle

Since all of our row by row patterns have appliques we decided to do some quick posts with step-by-step photos of placement for reference. Here are the step-by-step photos of our Eagle appliqué. 
For tips on tracing and cutting out your applique pieces, see our video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u0CrWrnbz5k.
This video was done on a more complicated applique but the steps for tracing and cutting out the applique still apply. 
Once your applique pieces are all cut out, you can work on placement of your pieces:
1. The first two pieces you will want to place are the tail and the back wing (the darker brown one). Position this over the arrow and then place the claws, with one underneath the wing piece and the other underneath the tail piece. Fuse into place. 
2. Next place the ‘top’ wing. This piece will overlap part of the tail and the other wing. Fuse this piece into place. 
3. Next comes the white head piece. This piece overlaps part of the top wing piece. Fuse into place. 
4. The last piece to place is the beak which fills in the opening at the front of the head piece. Position and fuse into place. 
In order to secure your applique pieces to your block, it's not a bad idea to stitch around your applique to secure it in place
Stay tuned for more step-by-step posts about the other 2 blocks from our two store location's Row by Row patterns. 
Happy Sewing!
