Pattern Description:

Wondering what to do with that package of one-yard pieces of fabric you bought at that last quilt show? Wonder no more; you'll be dashing to the finish line in no time with this fun and easy pattern. I was inspired by the great fabric packs one of my local shops puts together. This is easy enough for a beginner's second quilt. Worked in batiks it can be a sophisticated show-stopper. It's an all-round great pattern that looks soooo much more difficult than it actually is.
