All of the patterns in this book can be stitched with embroidery, rather than appliqué. It is easy and fun to do.
Trace the pattern directly to the background square with a pencil and stitch over the top of the markings, concealing them.
When the block is quilted, outline the embroidered animal directly over the stitching with a clear monofilament thread.
Then quilt very tightly in the background area allowing the animal to "poof up". This adds extra interest and dimension to your project and keeps it from looking flat.
