Posted by Ruth on 7 January 2013 | 1 Comments

The class includes three options to select from...

I love her spotty duck with the stripey feet.

Dotty Duck .... maybe a new name!

Right to binding as well. Now what is she doing here?

Being a nurse, I'm sure she will give you careful instructions on how to cut

There are many detailed photos included. I wonder what she uses this for?


Last year I made a couple of the animals and used them for bibs (A great gift for my grandson born recently), then give the pattern for Jennifer to share with her students.

Jennifer also use the appliques to make these wonderful placemats which are also included free. (the pattern that is)


If you want all the answers in how to machine applique and how to make this quilt, then you definitely want to join Jennifer when class starts on the 17th January.
