Pattern Details

As the orchestra plays "The Dance of the Sugarplum Fairy", the ballerina takes the stage during the performance of the Nutcracker Ballet. But wait- look more closely and you'll see that this dancer is actually a zebra. Wow! Would you ever have guessed that a zebra could dance so zestfully? You could use this 7" by 7" square block as part of a holiday wall decoration, Christmas stocking, baby bib, mug rug, pillow, or a cute holiday tote bag. Just use your imagination! The 4-page printable Christmas animal quilt pattern includes ready-to-use individual pieces and a full-sized applique layout guide, along with instructions for creating your own dainty zebra ballerina. Just print and you're ready to start the fun. The whimsical animal quilt pattern is appropriate for beginning to experienced quilters with some practice doing applique work. The sugarplum zebra block is included with our Animal Nutcracker Ballet wall hanging pattern, shown above and available in our Craftsy pattern shop. We hope that you will love making your very own graceful sugar plum fairy zebra as much as we loved creating her! 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. If you have questions regarding our patterns, please contact us via email: Happy Quilting! Ms. P
