Lesson one is all about picking fabrics and seeing what fits and what doesn't and creating the 4-patch blocks.

Not sure about applique? Fusible web appliqué is an easy method to learn how. Lesson 2 is completely dedicated to creating the animals and learning how to use fusible web as well as the different stitches to finish the edges.

Option B - stars but no animal appliqués so just a wonderful colourful scrappy quilt. And finally Option C - stars in sashing and 4-patch blocks as well as all 13 animal appliqués.
