Tiny Jewel Hummingbird Paper Piecing Class



This stunning hummingbird is a fantastic foundation paper piecing project. The Tiny Jewel pattern comes in three sizes. You receive the 18” templates in the pattern packet, ready for you to copy onto foundation paper or Perfect Piecing foundation sheets. You will also find a code to download the 9” and 12” sizes. Be sure to pick up the pattern at J Madeline’s early, because you will also receive coloring pages in the extra download to help you plan your colors.

This project is at the intermediate level. You must be familiar with foundation paper piecing before you make this beauty. Please be sure to sign up for a beginner level class first if you don’t feel that your skills are at the intermediate level!

The hummingbird can be made of scraps. A 9” square should be plenty for each color used in the hummer. The sample shown has 9 wing colors. Four of those same colors are used for the tail, and one is used for the throat. You will need a square of black and a square of white (or your choice of belly color). Last but not least, you need a bird body color, and a darker contrast for the upper wing. You will need ½ yard of background material. It is suggested that you avoid directional fabric for the background.
