Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Techniques used: frayed- edge applique, free-motion quilting, rag quilt edging

Pattern Description:

Be still in the forest at night and you might see an owl peering down from a branch or a raccoon out for an evening stroll. In the early morning a rabbit hides under a flower and a squirrel eats his nutty breakfast. The appliques are easy to sew with large pieces to fit a 20 inch quilt block. The modern, stylized shape of the pattern pieces was inspired by the just released Once Upon A Time fabric line of Yuko Hasegawa for the very popular RJR fabric company. The pattern uses raw edge applique which frays when washed. This results in a rustic, folk look to the quilt.

The blocks are quilted at the same time the appliques are sewn so when the quilt top is sewn the whole quilt is done except for the binding and clipping. Flannel fabric makes this rag quilt so soft and cuddly. The size is a large crib or throw-size quilt. The back of the quilt is just as beautiful as the front.

Approximate time to complete: 10-15 hours

This pattern includes complete easy to follow numbered step by step directions with 10 photos. There are full size printable patterns for each of the 4 woodland animal squares. The pattern is written with metric units in parenthesis. If you have any questions or concerns about the pattern please contact me.
