The inspiration for this quilt was for submission to a quilt contest. Somehow, it never got that far. I used the same applique design in a larger size from the Prairie Train pattern, with a different color theme. At the time, I found a great pink in the bargain bin at the quilt shop for the backing. And with that; it's perfect for the little girl that now owns it. This PDF pattern has colored illustrations, clear instructions, and full-size templates for the applique pieces that have already been reversed for the fusible applique process. Use my fabric choices as your guide and have fun with this project. If you wish, you may try one of my free applique patterns to see if the method is one you would like to make. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY You should already know how to use a sewing machine and some of the fancier stitches. Preferable, you would also have knowledge of fusible applique and cutting out fabrics using rotary cutting tools. If not, you can still learn by referring to quilting books that teach these methods.
