enchanted sal - katharina

Hi and thanks for joining us today on another edition of the Enchanted Paper Dolls Fall Sew Along. I am happy you could stop by. Grab a cup of coffee and read a little bit about the next figure in the sew along.

We are looking at Katharina today. This name is the mother of all names for me just like Catherine or Katherine. Why? Both my name and my sister's name is a derivative of this name.

On Sunday, December 29th, two winners will be picked to win two identical prizes.
  • one for the cutest ever and 
  • one for the best use of the mix and match templates.

Contest Rules:  

Make one figure from the pattern booklet or from the PDFs with individual figures. Sew the figure as shown in the instructions or mix and match to make your own figure. Upload the photo to Instagram or send me a copy of the photo. Enter as many times as you would like for more chances to win. We will have a social media voting on Instagram starting December 26th. Hurry up, because there are just two weeks left. Open to quilters at least 18 years of age. Void where prohibited.

Here is what you can win thanks to our great sponsors!

One set of quilting thread and three 1/2 yards of premium quality fabric sponsored by Gutermann.

AND one 28 mm rotary cutter, 1" x 6" ruler and mini cutting mat sponsored by einfach bunt Quilts.

That's worth a shot, don't you think?

Now on to our enchanting princess, Katharina. She was inspired by Cleopatra. Do you see the resemblance? I gave her a bit of a yellow tinted skin color. All of my figures in this quilt have different hair colors and skin colors. I wanted to have an international variety of princesses, angels and fairies. I also removed the inner stone in her crown and fussy cut the light blue print.

The one of the really cool features on this figure is that you can shorten her hair length by omitting or skipping the sewing line on the templates. This is explained in further detail in the instructions. The below examples are created in EQ8 - my quilt designing software which I also teach if you are interesting in learning.

That's all for today. Thanks for joining us. If you would like to purchase the individual PDF or paper book with all 12 figures, you can find all of them in my Etsy shop or at your local quilt store such as einfach bunt quilts or Niemanns-Land.
