Ladybug Snail Butterfly Appliqué Patterns

Posted on Last updated: /

Hi there, I am back with the second group of applique patterns for the Secret Garden Quilt, this time they are the Ladybug, Snail, and Butterfly Appliqué Patterns. Similar to the Flower applique, these little cuties were made by fusible raw edge applique and quilted with the Trapunto method.

Download free appliqué patterns of ladybug, butterfly, and snail to complete the Secret Garden Quilt Blanket or to use in your sewing projects.

Although these three appliqué patterns are part of the Secret Garden Appliqué Quilt project, you don’t have to limit yourself to using them only for big quilt projects. Each of them can be used individually for smaller sewing projects like fabric coasters, embellishment appliqué on bags, clothes, pouches, and more.

Also, in this tutorial, we demo it with the Trapunto quilting method; however, you can use them in your usual applique way.

    Hi Would like to make this quilt and would like to know - do you do trapunto on the individual blocks before you piece all the blocks together?

    Beautiful quilt. I love it, and I don't quilt but your ladybugs, bird and butterflies would work in scrapbooking and applique which I do like to do. They are beautiful. Thanks for providing the pattern for them. Joyce

    I must say this is a beautiful quilt. I am new to quilting and I was wondering how I can scale this pattern down for a toddler as a blanket/ throw?
