Come to the forest at night and you might see a cuddly raccoon! The woodland raccoon is a friend to have appliqued on a quilt or pillow. He is easy to sew with large pieces to fit a 20 inch quilt block. The modern, stylized shape of the raccoon was inspired by the just released Once Upon A Time fabric line of Yuko Hasegawa for the very popular RJR fabric company. The pattern as sewn in the picture uses raw edge applique which frays when washed. This results in a rustic, folk look to the quilt.
