It’s total panda-monium with these two twins, Jill and Jason Toddle. I’m sure they could find some mischief to get into! These panda bear quilts make the perfect toddler-size quilt at 25” x 36” (not including the ears and paws.) Using Therm O Web StitchnSew™ Fleece Sew-in High Loft for batting gives it a soft and light weight feeling, which makes it a sweet way to snuggle up and feel the love.

Panda Bear Quilt Instructions:
For quick creation and no tracing of the applique patterns, use your
For quick creation and no tracing of the applique patterns, use your inkjet printer to print out applique pattern pieces using HeatnBond® EZ Print Lite sheets. Load one sheet at a time into the paper tray. Sheet should be placed so printing is on the smooth side of the paper. Print quality at the normal setting and for plain paper. Allow 5-10 seconds for ink to dry.
To fuse the applique to your fabric, iron adhesive pieces to wrong sides of fabrics with a medium heat iron, no steam. Press for 2 seconds. Repeat until all surfaces have been bonded to the fabric. Let cool. Cut out applique pieces. Peel off paper liner. Place applique shape, adhesive side down, on top of the project. Press and hold iron for 6 seconds on each section until the entire piece is bonded. Let cool. Sew around edges using a straight, zig-zag, or blanket stitch.
The Therm O Web StitchnSew™ Fleece Sew-in High Loft/Batting or Heat n Bond Fleece Fusible High Loft is great for using in the middle of the quilt and between the ears and the paws.
When using the fusible fleece, pre-heat iron to a medium setting with steam. Place rough side down on the wrong side of fabric. Cover with a light pressing cloth. Press and iron for 10-15 seconds, moving to new areas and slightly overlapping until all areas are bonded. Let cool.
Therm O Web SpraynBond® Basting Adhesive helps hold the Stitch n Sew Fleece in place on one side while you’re stitching around all edges of the quilt. Lightly spray and press wrong side of the fabric to the fleece. Smooth it out to remove wrinkles.
Now after the quilt is sewn you’ll need to turn it inside out and blind stitch the opening closed. An easy way to keep the seam together while you’re stitching is to use PeelnStick Fabric Fuse.
Shrinking the pattern can create a pillow, too…FUN!
