Rugged Rhino applique pattern PDF
I've always loved the shape of rhinos - those strong, bulky bodies and that preposterous horn. (I know this is a quilt of African animals - but I hope you all will forgive me for using a single-horned Indian rhino. I just like the look of them better.) And now he's here! I designed this applique pattern especially for beginners. You can make it!
The block is nice and big - 16 inches square! That means even though there are three pointy bits on it (the toughest shape to machine applique) the applique pieces are a nice workable size and easy to handle.
You'll receive full-sized pattern pieces - nothing to enlarge or reduce. Though you can certainly do that if you prefer to make it larger or smaller. Reduce them down a bit and they'd be great on a T-shirt! I also include a one-page, smaller version of the image for easier enlarging and reducing.
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 there are also links to videos showing you how to applique with fusible adhesive or use needle-turn if you prefer the look of those methods.
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 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.
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!
