It’s a Fun Project That Everyone Adores!
This cute hippo is so much fun and sure to be adored by adults and kids alike. It will be great made up in scraps from a matching quilt or give it any color theme you want.
Hexies in a variety of prints give it a charming patchwork look. A jaunty bow is a cute finishing touch.
“If you enjoy English Paper Pieceing (EPP), you will be happy to know that you can make a great deal of the hippo using EPP methods. For sewers who prefer machine sewing, you too can make most of him using your machine.”
The hippo, designed by Heidi from Heidi Bears, is about 12″ from nose to tail, and approximately 5.5″ from the bottom of the feet to the shoulder
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
