Worry Dolls


Finished Quilt Size: 52” x 52” (132cm x 132cm)

Worry Dolls are a tradition of the Guatemalan children who make tiny colourful dolls from sticks & fabric threads. The children share their worries with heir dolls and the doll then takes care of their problems while they sleep.

The bright colours & playful characters combine beautifully in this quilt making this such a fun project that any child would love! I designed the quilt for my daughter Jessica, who always carries the worries of the world with her.

This pattern includes complete instructions & full sized pattern sheets, to create this fun cuddle quilt & two cute cushions. The appliqué in this project is put together using raw edge appliqué. The sky literally is the limit with this design why not individualise the dolls in your version to represent little people who are special to you or use the shapes to make any number of new creations.

*Bonus cushion designs included in this pattern!*
