Whether you believe in astrology or not, this applique set is a lot of fun! These appliques  are a great addition to whatever you like – and if astrology isn’t your thing, they stand alone as a ram, bull, and little girls! In 2016 I’m creating applique patterns for the entire zodiac – 3 at a time. The first set, including Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces can be found by clicking HERE. And below you’ll find the patterns for the second set: Aries, Taurus, and Gemini!

When all the appliques are done, I’m going to stitch them to some 6″ solid granny squares – and mix those up with the Fates Square… and have a zodiac baby blanket! I hope you enjoy all the patterns!
