Use up your stash
No need to worry too much about the fabrics for this patter. If your 9 fat 1/4’s look lovely together they will be great in the quilt. And it doesn’t matter if these are Fat 1/4’s from metres (as in Europe) or Fat 1/4s from yards (as in the USA) – you can still manage.
Rotary Cutting Practice
Great for beginners since the sewing is easy. Valerie also guides you through layer cutting with the rotary cutter, it was designed to do so that you have lots of accurately cut pieces quickly.
The pattern comes in two different size blocks, but the overall design remains the same. Valerie also gives you some alternative ideas for borders: Piano Keys and/or the use of the flat piping.
