Scottie dogs are hard to resist, especially when you pair and appliqué one with hexagons and reproductions fabrics to get this sweet appliqué and English paper pieced quilt pattern from Lynelle Slade.
Full materials list included in instructions
Pattern sheet included with triangle, hexagon and Scottie dog shapes ready for tracing
While this quilt looks super-sweet in 1930s-style reproduction fabrics, you can use any style of fabric, and with all those hexagons and small triangles, it’s a great project for using up fabric scraps and fussy cutting
The appliqué method used is fusible web with machine zig-zag stitch, however you can adapt to suit your preferred method of appliqué
Detailed step-by-step instructions, colour photographs and clear diagrams take you through all the steps, from creating your appliqué to English paper piecing and quilting with straight stitch and free-motion machine quilting
Includes Lynelle’s tips on the importance of pressing and pinning
A great project for intermediate-level quilters with some appliqué and English paper piecing experience
