Paper Round Quilt
No-pin Curves in three sizes.
In this workshop by Jenny Haynes, (the fab Papper, Sax, Sten!) you’ll make the Triple Drunkard’s Path Block in combination with straight strips to get you started on your own Throw or Twin sized version of Jenny’s Paper Round Quilt.
You’ll look at colour and fabric choices for this curvy and modern design, cut curves using Jenny’s Drunkard’s Path templates, and Jenny will share her tips and tricks on how to sew no-pin machine-pieced curves in three sizes.
Piecing the blocks and achieving perfectly matching seams is made easy with the templates.

About your tutor:
A Swedish exile having spent the previous 18 years in London and Sheffield, Jenny Haynes (née Nilsson) studied Pattern Cutting and Tailoring in her native Stockholm. Soon after, she followed her passion for fabrics and moved to London to study Fashion and Textiles at the London College of Fashion. She went on to develop her own label ‘Papper, Sax, Sten’ (that’s ‘Paper, Scissors, Stone’ in case you’re wondering!), creating award winning designs that reflect her many different influences.
Her bespoke quilts and furnishings are recognised for their clean and simple, mid-century modern design. Jenny mixes rich colours with pastels and is not scared of a colour clash, often using her trademark curves together with solid fabrics, while remaining faithful to her Scandi’ roots. This was recognised in Summer ’15 when Jenny was invited by the Swedish Chamber of Commerce, along with 18 other Swedish designers, to be a part of Heal’s Swedish Summer Exhibition. Heal’s have a long history of promoting Swedish design with exhibitions in 1923, ’51 and ’71.
In 2117 Jenny was asked to contribute to a publication by Thames & Hudson for the V&A. Two of Jenny’s quilts are featured in Patchwork & Quilting: A Maker’s Guide, ‘Designed by teachers and practitioners at the leading edge of today’s craft revival, the projects are both functional and fashionable’.
