Animal Appliqué Quilts

I’ve been cutting quilts out for Mom. For one of them we pulled fabric to make one of the Animal Appliqué Quilts that she’s done in the past. She now has the GO Dinosaur die and I had a cute Dino print for the center and some bright coordinating scraps for the dinosaurs. These are quick easy “panel” like quilts if you like appliqué.

Here’s one she did with the Elephant GO die.

This one was made with the Zoo Animal Die and the Elephant Die

This one from the GO Critter Die. Of course you can use your own appliqué patterns too. Mom just has those dies so it was easy to use some fusible web and then cut them out with the die. She machine appliqués them using a blanket stitch.

I wrote down the measurements we use if you’re interested in making one of your own. She likes them to fit on one width of fabric so she doesn’t have to piece the backing but you could make yours wider. Animal Applique Quilt

Here are a couple others that she made.


  1. Those animal quilts are so cute. And easy to make. Love handstitched applique. Thanks for sharing. Your mom is very active just like you.

  2. That is a fantastic pattern. That would work with so many different shapes around the edges. Your mom makes such cute quilts.

  3. These quilts are so cute. The fabrics and die cuts coordinate so well together. Your Mom and you are so quick at piecing these quilts.

  4. Such cute quilts!! Those are going to make some lucky children very happy!! Your Mom does so much appliqué and it is something I am afraid to do. But I am determined to try it one day. I love seeing everything you and your Mom get accomplished while she is visiting. Just amazing!! I bet she is enjoying all the wildlife around your place. I would be staring out the windows all the time.

  5. What a great idea for making adorable children’s quilts! I have many of these cute applique dies, but never seem to get around to using them….this will be a perfect use for them! I know you are very aware that you are so fortunate to be able to share your quilting passion with your sweet Mom….I really regret that I didn’t become interested in quilting until after my Mom had passed away. I would give anything to be able to share quilting time with her.

  6. Please thank your mom for the mini quilt show. These quilts turned out so cute and will make so many children happy. Thanks for your generosity in sharing the measurements and idea! This will be a fun one to try.
