Paper Doll Sew-Along #7


Hi lovely quilters, it’s time for the next instalment of our Thermoweb Paper Dolls Sew-Along. Click on the photo below to download the file, or pop on over to our Paper Dolls Sew-Along page where you will find all of the instalments and more. Row 2 is now complete, Autumn/fall is next to come!



I’ve had a lot of requests in recent weeks for the old Flower Fairies pattern so I’ve uploaded it to our free pattern page for a limited time. Keep in mind this is an older pattern and I haven’t updated it yet. Please take care with the wing and body templates, make sure the overlapping pieces do overlap properly, especially around the hair.


I’ve been unpicking this old quilt top I found in my scrap bin. I was never entirely happy with it and being in lockdown has given me the time to revisit the design. It’s been trimmed, pressed and re-set in plain framing strips. Now to fix the borders! This is a procrastination project, I can’t quite get the sloth quilt right and it’s driving me crazy LoL.


I hope you’ve all been well and taking care. Are the lockdowns easing where you are? I’m hoping to be able to stock up on fabric in the coming weeks as the stores start to open again, my stash is seriously depleted LoL. Love to all, toni xx
