NB: There is a correction to the templates for Mandy Shaw’s lovely Nutcracker Scene

It was brought to our attention that some of the templates on the template sheet had been drawn in reverse, and others not. The slipper template was also missing and this has been updated on the digital download above.

If you are using the printed template sheet that came with issue 54 of the magazine, please carefully refer to the images of the quilt when cutting pieces, and flip the applique templates if required.


We’re sorry about this, and hope you enjoy stitching this beautiful project.
