In case you are new to the world of large applique designs, let me fill you in. A large applique design is one which needs 2 or more hoopings, with the joining completed as you stitch, in the hoop. The beauty of my large applique designs is you can quickly create a 3D Animal Design much larger than your hoop, and then add them to quilt blocks, reading pillows or pretty much any item as you like.
Our Large Applique Koala is created and joined In 2 hoopings (3 for 5x7 hoop) - allowing you to make a free standing applique animal , larger than your hoop.
5X7 Hoop 8 by 8.5 inches 20 by 22 cms
6X10 Hoop 9.5 by 10.5 inches 25 by 27 cms
8X8 Hoop 9 by 10 inches 23 by 25 cms
Note – there is no separate 8x10 – it is the same sizing as using the 6x10 hoop
By popular demand, we have added a Plain version of the Koala

I had to share Anne's simple but so effective Quilt idea - the gorgeous Large Koala centre, then to make the borders, Anne writes "I Straightened the centre then just cut fabric into 2in strips 6 and 9in long, and went around til i was happy with size" Anne used a Fat pack of fabric - Isn't this just beautiful!!
