Mini wildlife quilts
This is a set of mini quilts that some friends and I made to decorate our church bathrooms:-) They were very simple to make using precut strips of fabric. We even used them generally in the same order that they were in the packages, we figured they always look nice there, so it should work on a quilt, right?
We cut them to different widths, and some freehand curves on one of them. Then we just laid them down overlapping a bit on our batting and backing and raw-edge appliqued them with decorative stitches. This works best with a walking foot so they don't stretch and distort, but it's very quick and easy. The animals are just fused on. I think they are about 18 inches tall. A quick and fun project!
I'll put a bigger picture of one in too.

I am a homeschooling mom of three fun kids, who are now old enough that I have a little time to pursue my passion for sewing! After several years of making quilted cards and art quilts, I'm now designing kits and patterns. Some of my designs have been in Keepsake Quilting and Art Quilting Studios magazine! I teach classes online, and am starting to do more traveling and teaching. I also have many tutorials, including some on YouTube. I am blessed to live in Alaska where I am surrounded by the inspiration provided by the beauty of God's creation!
Free card pattern and also an e-book, and a quilt planning checklist!
