Who could resist this little lady as she sits on your table waiting for a cup and cookie? Dress her in traditional Russian colours or choose a brighter combination of fabrics - either way she will warm any home. And don't worry if you don't like patchwork - this design comes with an easier alternative for the sidebars - a simple striped option that requires no matching of seams. Known around the world, the Matryoshka doll is adored by young and old alike. And as we all know, Russian Dolls are never alone so make a couple - one to keep and one for a friend or relative. This pattern was designed initially for the Quilting Gallery mug rug swap 2014 and comes with easy-to-follow instructions, colour diagrams and full size applique sheet. This pattern is for personal use but permission is also granted to make this item to sell provided the item is handmade by you and you credit The Patchsmith for the design. No mass production allowed. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Quick Fuse Applique SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Size before quilting 9" x 6.5"

I am the Patchsmith. I patch, applique, sew and quilt. I have been creating a life of fabric, fun and friends for many, many years. I believe a pattern should be easy to follow, with clear diagrams and full-size templates. Value is also very important to me - both in terms of fabric wastage and to the buyer. Patchwork is about sharing and that is why all my patterns are priced for everybody to afford. To contact me visit my blog ( and click on 'About the Patchsmith' or email me at
