Pattern Description:

Gazelles are so beautiful - especially those long, graceful horns. I was worried that those horns would be difficult to applique (that's why I saved them for so late in the series) but they turned out to be a breeze. Nothing to fear in this pattern!

The block is nice and big - 16 inches wide and almost 32 inches tall - twice as tall as the basic Safari Quilt blocks. That means the applique pieces are nice and big - and if you decide to make a full quilt it will go together pretty quickly.

You'll receive a full-sized pattern - nothing to enlarge or reduce. I also include a smaller pattern that fits on a single page for easy enlarging and reducing, in case you want to also use the pattern for embroidery, collage, painting, or other projects.

The pattern includes complete instructions with loads of step-by-step photos and links to video tutorials teaching you every skill you'll need to make this project.

The instructions in the pattern are for a quick and easy machine applique technique that looks very similar to fancy needle-turn applique, but you can also use fusible adhesive or needle-turn if you prefer the look of those methods. You'll find tutorials for those methods at Shiny Happy World.

With this single block you can make a wall hanging or pillow cover. Applique the design to a tote bag, a T-shirt, or anything else you can think of.

You could also repeat the same block multiple times in different colors for a Warhol-esque quilt.

Or you can sign up for the Safari Quilt Block of the Month Club. Every month for 12 months you'll get a new applique block pattern of an African animal, progressing in difficulty throughout the year until you're smack in the intermediate skill level. This snake is the fifth block in the series. You can see other animals in the series in the additional photos.

Materials:

  • 1/2 yard background fabric
  • 1/4 yard tan fabric for body
  • scraps of dark brown for horns
  • scrap of brown felt for nose
  • dark brown embroidery thread

You Will Also Need:

  • freezer paper

I'm on a mission to teach people to sew, quilt, and embroider. I design patterns especially for beginners and I never release a pattern until I have videos teaching you every skill you'll need to complete the project. Have fun!
