Pattern Description:

This no-sew soft fabric Art Quilt design is perfect for decorating an RV, or anywhere you do not want glass, Art quilts store easily, and take little space, making them ideal for a small apartment, home or RV.

If you sew, embellishments and quilting will add additional interest and make it your own!
