Pattern Details

This caiman is floating along in the Amazon River, oblivious to the piranha below. The piranha are trying to decide if they dare to tickle the caiman's toes! You could use this 7" by 7" square block as part of a whimsical zoo or jungle baby quilt, a mug rug, or to decorate a bib for a toddler. Just use your imagination! The 4-page printable pattern includes ready-to-use individual pieces and a full-sized applique layout guide, along with instructions for creating your own cheerful caiman and perky piranha. Just print and you're ready to start the fun. The pattern is appropriate for beginning to experienced quilters with some practice doing applique work. Our Jumpin' Jungle Quilt pattern, pictured above and available in our pattern shop , includes the caiman pattern along with 12 other unique animal applique patterns, if you would like a more involved project. We hope that you will love making your very own chillaxed caiman as much as we loved creating him! Original design by Ms. P Designs USA Happy Quilting! Ms P

Sharon Andersen and Susan Hatcher are sisters as well as co-owners of Ms. P Designs USA. We collaborate to create these adorable patterns to share with you. We've been sewing since we were little girls growing up on the family farm in Montana, and both of us began quilting about 30 years ago. The idea of Ms P Designs was born when we decided that it would be fun to design quilting patterns together. It took some time, and lots of encouragement (from our spouses, children, and each other), for us to be ready to publish our designs, but Ms P Designs USA was eventually launched, and here we are today! :) Our themed animal applique quilts are inspired by the diversity of life on Earth. We choose familiar animals for each quilt, but also include a few species that are not as well-known, but still interesting and unusual. We also create unique foundation paper pieced patterns, including blocks that feature vehicles, ships, and other designs that you won't find anywhere else! We have so many fun ideas, and can hardly wait to get started on our next designs to share with you! We hope that you will love our patterns as much as we love creating them for you.
