This pattern comes with 8 1/2" by 11" sheets of paper that you print out, line up the dots, tape them together, and it makes a pattern. The added photos help visualize how to make this quilt. It is so easy! The Lion Quilt is great for babies or children...they'll love wrapping up in their own quilt to watch TV or read a book. They are perfect to snuggle up in on a cold night!
