Enormous Elephant applique pattern PDF
This Enormous Elephant block really is enormous. It's as big as FOUR regular safari quilt blocks - appropriate for the elephant, no? I'll teach you a little trick for working with pieces bigger than your freezer paper, but other than that there are no new skills introduced with this block. You can do it all now!
Like I said - the block is huge - almost 32 inches square. It would make a terrific floor pillow, or a big corner of your finished twin-size Safari quilt.
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.
Like all the other blocks in the collection, you could also repeat this same block multiple times for a quilt like the Peekaboo Bear 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.
After your purchase of this item you'll receive an email allowing you to download the pattern instantly. That's right - service at the speed of light!
