What you get

Please note: This pattern is a digital PDF pattern. More info here.

Mix and match fun hairstyles and cute outfits to make the paper dolls in this super fun and easy quilt. It's a great way to feature scraps from favorite fabrics. Or use fabric from a child's outgrown clothes to make an extra special memory quilt!

The pattern is so much more than just a pattern. It’s really an appliqué workshop disguised as a pattern. :-) If you know how to use your sewing machine, you can make this cuddly paper dolls quilt!

There are links to videos teaching you three different appliqué techniques - needle turn, machine appliqué, and appliqué with fusible adhesive - and the pattern includes pieces laid out special to work with printable products. Skip the tracing and jump right to the fun part!

I used appliqué with fusible adhesive and Quilt As You Go to make a super easy quilt - almost all done on the machine. The only handwork was the final step of the binding. That's my favorite part to do by hand because it gives me some lap time with my new quilt. :-)
