Squirrel Applique Block

A couple of weeks ago I got a request for a squirrel applique. I realized it has been a while since I added any new applique blocks. Yikes! I really can’t believe I haven’t included a squirrel sooner. Our backyard is teaming with wildlife… totally encouraged by us. We provide year round water and food for our little friends. In our green belt we have stacks of branches and brush for animals to make their homes. We have birdhouses throughout our yard for nesting. We even certified our garden with The National Wildlife Federation. BTW.. If you are interested in certifying your backyard, check out their program HERE. It is a wonderful nature study to do with your family.

Anyway, back to the squirrels 🙂 Although many people try to keep squirrels out of their feeders, they are welcomed in our yard. Providing them with sunflowers is a small price to pay for the constant entertainment they provide. So, in celebration of our furry friends, I have created a Squirrel Applique Block. As always, it was designed to fit a 6″ x 6″ block, but it can be reduced or enlarged to meet your needs. The pattern for the block can be found HERE. Enjoy!

  1. I love this little guy! I want to make him, but not sure what to use him for! I just might have to start a blanket 🙂

  2. Wonderful! I mentioned to my daughters how much I miss squirrels, so my youngest has been telling everyone who will listen that when we go to Oregon for Christmas we will see squirrels on the telephone wires at grandma’s house. I think I should make this for her for Christmas. She’s also getting one of your dolls. In fact, your stuff has made an appearance at every birthday and holiday around here for the last year and a half or so!

  3. Thank you for this, he’s absolutely adorable!

    We don’t have squirrels in Australia, so it’s quite hard to find anything squirrelly for my squirrel loving husband – mini coffee table cover on it’s way now. 🙂

  4. Such a lovely sweet squirrel, thank you for this 🙂
