Basic Skills Necessary:

  • This a wall hanging that measures approximately 40" x 40". This quilt uses a variety of techniques that are beginner friendly and playfully friendly for the experienced seamstress. Also, this pattern includes a different layout guide where the blocks can be adapted to make a table runner or skinny wall hanging as an alternative.

Pattern Description:

Allow me to introduce this pattern item. Whether you have young children in school or if you have a special place in your heart for the Back-to-School season this quilt hopefully captures the meaning for you. It means something to me being that it was such an exciting time when I was younger k-12 and then in college and now with my kids venturing in the elementary school years and I continue learning myself everyday. It is evident that this learning journey won't end ? This is a fun sampler that I am sure you will enjoy. This quilt also uses some of my most favorite techniques. These techniques a beginner can practice to expand their skills or for a skilled seamstress they can ease through them contentedly. I love this playful design and I hope this will give you the same opportunity to make something from the heart to enjoy.

This also would make a wonderful BOM - contact me for wholesale info if you are in need of more than one copy :)
