Large Cookie Cutter animals are appliqued to the center panel of a cute baby quilt. I'm happy to share it now as a Statler Project.
This quilt is one of many pieces I have finished in my Quilt Rescue project. The original textile was two 100 lb sugar sacks sewn together to create a long panel. The sacking had been woven with stripes and was intended to be recycled as dish towels. A creative soul decided instead to applique animals on it. Your center panel can be striped, pieced, or plain, as you like.
For the rescue, I added the pieced blocks and sashes on each side to give it better proportions and to make it a usable size. I quilted the quilt on my Statler Stitcher. For new work, you will piece the entire top first and applique the animals after the quilting is done.
The PDF includes instructions for piecing the Hen and Chicks blocks and applique with the Statler Sticher. The Statler Project includes the quilt image, full applique layout with blanket stitch applique and detail stitching, the block and sashing quilting patterns.
