From the Treetops laser cut kit features a trio of baby bear cubs who have climbed up a tree for safety after dark with a long swirling Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) reaching high into the sky over a mountain backdrop. The mother bear will leave her cubs near a sturdy tree during their first outings out of the den for protection. If the cubs climb and call, the mother bear returns quickly to defend them.
This kit contains the applique quilt pattern and fabrics that match the original pattern cover. All fabrics shown are Hoffman Fabrics batiks. Included are laser pre-cut appliques using Lite Steam-a-Seam 2 fusible web, background fabric, borders and binding.
This wall hanging can be made individually or combined with the other four Aurora Nights series of patterns to create a large 42 1/2" x 59" combined wall hanging. The last photo shows the combined wall hanging using all five patterns.
Wildfire Designs Alaska patterns are designed for fusible applique, so I recommend that you use an Applique Pressing Sheet. The pattern contains a layout guide, full size applique pattern pieces that are already reversed, and instructions. Although the instructions do not say this, I recommend that all the applique pieces should be sewn down to the quilt top after fusing using the stitch of your choice (straight stitch, zig-zag, buttonhole or satin stitch).
