Quilts are not always easy to carry around daily so I decided to make something I could use all the time and would not be too heavy. The shawl goes very nicely over a coat and it is not cumbersome. Folds small and fits in my handbag. Can also be made using Charm Packs which are 5" squares. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY sew with a sewing machine or by hand SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 48" x 48"
