Kite Applique Block

Yesterday we shared this month’s Out of the Block project… a wooden kite made using today’s Kite Applique Block. What is it about kites that excites us so? Is it the fact that a little paper, wood and string, can be transformed into a soaring vision? Or is it, that for just a little while, we feel like we can fly? No matter what draws us to kites, it is surely a sign of spring along with tulips, pussy willows and robins. YAY for spring 🙂

Out kite applique was made to fit on a 6″ x 6″ block, but it can be enlarged or reduced to meet your needs. When you are appliqueing your block, you can use the pattern to cut out the felt ties on the tail or you can use small pieces of woven fabric. The pattern for the kite can be found HERE. Enjoy 🙂 


Go Fly A Kite 🙂




  1. I love the pattern, but in your description instead of “woolen” you’ve written “wooden”…LOL
    Maybe you could fix it?
    Thanks for the cute pattern. I love working with wool AND wood! LOL

    1. Actually, I did mean wooden and not woolen. If you follow the link to the post I was talking about, we turned the applique pattern into a wooden kite with a peg for hanging bags, coats, etc. Michelle and I do so many crafts and blogs and there is only so much editing we can do. We appreciate it when our readers bring mistakes to our attention that can effect the quality of a tutorial. We don't anyone walking away scratching their heads because what we said didn't make sense. Even though I meant wooden, I do appreciate that you took the time to help make WFA a better blog! Thanks for keeping us on our toes 😉
