This quilt was inspired by the beautiful rose print collection of fabrics. They reminded me of a favorite story I read when I was young about a little girl who discovered an abandoned cottage with an overgrown rose garden in the woods. She carefully and lovingly restored it with the secret help of its owner. I always wanted to find my own little cottage and rose garden! The strip piecing shows off an array of the prints while being an easy project for the beginning quilter. Three feature blocks are comprised of easy to piece cottages framed in a contrasting border BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Basic sewing, rotary cutting, and a basic understanding of piecing, assembling and finishing a quilt SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 40" x 50"
