    Looking for those Dancing Ladies

    Does anyone know where to purchase the applique templates for "dancing ladies" who appear to be holding hands? I've usually seen them used around the quilt edge.

    I tried posting the link from http://www.sugergoofquilts.blogspot.com, a blog in the Netherlands, but it didn't open to the exact page.

    THX for any help!


    Edited: this is the correct link http://supergoof-quilts.blogspot.com

    Nancy, thanks so much, but the one I've seen is much simpler, not as intricate and the arms/hands actually touch. Hope you can look around on the link I provided to see a photo.

    BTW, how does one go back into their original post to do an edit? I don't see the "edit post" button anymore and want to modify my original with that corrected link.

    Thx Nancy. If you find a small photo of a blue/white quilt she has done with different shapes (hexagons, etc.), the ladies are around the edge. In fact, that is how I saw this early today, just by clicking around on the site.

    What a great site and that border is so nice! If I was into applique I would do it with multiple colors around a kids quilt...

    I love that quilt! I couldn't find anything really close - but this is similar - I think you might need to draft your own pattern.

    I translated the Dutch (using Google translate) and it says "Although the ladies are not yet finished, I enjoy from it. And then I wonder about how a quilt that 'just' the past year has grown, I own & become dear. So very different from most Australian Dancing Dollies. These ladies are my own Dancing Goof Dutch version of a beautiful ancient Australian pattern. What is different? The color blue, the lace on the dresses of the dancing ladies, corners, hearts and the whole middle course. And the story behind ... Now we just quilting, but that's okay, I'm not afraid."

    I looked up Australian Dancing Dollies and here is the quilt pattern - http://www.legendandlace.com/index.p...&productId=183
    Wow! I love it! A reproduction of a vintage Australian quilt!

    I kept on drilling down and found a good picture on Oktober 28, 2011, title "Keicek" of the ladies, the shapes are basic, shouldn't be a problem to draft your own version with a wedge ruler, a small circle and the rounded shape for the arms - looks like fun, would be great in repro fabrics with bits of trim or ribbon, etc.

    Looking at the picture of the Ayers Australian quilt, it's hard to tell, the picture is so small, but it seems the women on the quilt edge are the same design, or at least almost the same. Again, basic shapes, a little playing with them and you should be able to create your own pattern!

    I don't have a pattern to offer, but remember back when you folded and cut out paper dolls? They were all connected befoe you cut them apart. Very simple, but might be able to use them as a pattern. Just a thought.

    This is basically triangles of calico fabric with triangles of background fabric. The heads and arms are applique. I drafted my version. The line across the skirt is the line for appliqueing the lace. Sorry, no heart - can't seem to get that drawn this morning.

    I don't know exactly which pattern you are looking for but in the Australian publication "Patchwork & Quilting" Vol. 19, No. 3 & 4 there is a pattern called Girls in the Garden with the appliqued girls holding hands around the frame. The pattern is by Donna Warren. PM me if you would like more details.
