Celestial Bunnies Applique Pattern

Friday, September 23, 2016

I love machine applique for quick and cute representational projects. To make the moon bunny mini quilt you will need:
  • (1) 24" square for background
  • (4) 7.25" x 4.5" pieces for bunnies
  • (2) 6.5" squares for moon background and crescent
  • (8) 1.75" squares for sparkles
  • (12) 1" squares for circles
  • Paper-backed fusible web 
  • 26" square batting
  • 26" square backing
  • .25 yard for binding
  • Thread to match your appliques (I used my coordinating Aurifil collection)
  • Applique templates, printed at 100%
Trace the appropriate number of each template onto your paper-backed fusible web. You'll need (4) bunnies, (1) moon background, (1) moon crescent, (8) sparkles, and (4) of each size of circle. Fuse the web to the wrong side of your fabric and cut the pieces out.

Fold and press your 24" background square in half vertically, horizontally, and on both diagonals to create creases. Unfold. Position your applique pieces as shown in the photo, using the creases as a guide and fuse them to the background. Stitch around each piece with a blanket, applique, or zigzag stitch with matching thread. 

Now you can make your quilt sandwich and quilt your mini! Cut (3) 2.5" WOF strips from your binding fabric, sew end to end, and bind.
