This Basketball Cougar is an adaptation from my original basketball bear. A customer was looking for a Wildcat together we came up with this. It turned out so cute I just had to share it with the rest of you.

One of my favorite things about it is that it works with so many teams: Wildcats, Cougars, Mountain Lions, and if you change the colors you can add Panthers, Jaguars, Leopards, and Tigers to the list.

The 3 sizes also make it great for all ages. Add fun basketball or team borders and switch it up even more. The pattern has instructions for a picture that is 36"x42, and then alternate measurements for 24x28 and 48"x56". So you can make a quilt for little future basketball stars, or a lap quilt for their number one fan. Add your team colors or logo fabric for a border and turn the lap size into twin.

My patterns are great for beginning quilters using straight rotary cutting and straight 1/4 seams.

1st step, use a chart to cut the given number of strips for each color.
2nd step use a set of table to cut those strips into varying piece lengths which you will label alphabetically.
Shaping in done with triangles, so you will mark all the triangle pieces, these will be squares sewn into half squares triangles so you draw a sew line corner to corner.
3rd and final step, sew the quilt top row by row following a full page color picture also labeled alphabetically.

 

Selecting Fabrics: Due to the fact that the pattern pieces may be sewn both horizontally and vertically to make the picture we recommend using non-directional fabric.
