Back in mid-winter, I pulled out some sunny, cheery scraps to work with, and made this randomly pieced throw quilt. I knew it needed something more, and when I saw huge ampersands as decorative items in a gift shop one day, I knew that's what I wanted to put on my throw quilt -- and the AmpersAnd quilt was born! The pattern includes easy-to-follow cutting and piecing instructions, and full-sized templates for the applique ampersand. Make the base in your favorite color scheme, and choose a nice contrasting piece for your ampersand (or leave it off, if you prefer). BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY machine piecing, applique SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 56" x 70"
