Turn simple squares into adorable little quilts! This whimsical collection features a fun and diverse group of beginner friendly pieced animals. The Patch Pals series quilts are all the same size (40 1/4″ x 50 3/4″), with interchangeable borders that offer lots of variations. These scrappy color palettes are a great way to customize the designs to complement a child’s personality or theme of a nursery/bedroom.
Regal Patch: The king of the jungle stands tall and proud amongst the bright green grass. Try using a variety of tan and brown fabrics to create dimension in his mane, or frame the gentle king in the recipient’s favorite color for added contrast!
Hoo Patch: Master your piecing skills while making this wise owl. Add an extra scrappy touch by using a variety of midnight blues and bright whites in the border to build depth between the crescent moons and night sky.
Aussie Patch: Patch Pals takes a trip down under to visit their fuzzy koala friend Aussie Patch. With soft grays and sage greens, this charming koala is sure to be a comforting touch to a nursery. Kits available.
Purr Patch: Let your little one help create a sweet kitty of their own by playing with color and unit placement. Try adding a collar in the pieced units and stitching the kitties name on a tag for an extra personal touch. Kits available.
Pond Patch: Hop around the pond and spend some time catching flies with Pond Patch. A lily pad border accents this playful and bright quilt. This quick to piece design will leave you extra time to adventure around together searching for tasty bugs! Kits available.
