ENGLISH PAPER PIECING- Block of the Month Program
Smitten Quilt by Lucy Kingwell for Jen Kingwell Designs.
Lucy is Jen's daughter and the talent for beautifully
hand-pieced and quilted scrappy quilts run in the family!
The Smitten quilt is 48" x 61" .
The quilt looks really complicated, but like any big project,
you should "eat the elephant one bite at a time" so to speak. :) Ultimately, it is made up of a lot of pieced hexagons all hooked together with no tricky y-seams! Comes together so easily!!
$49 includes pattern and monthly meetings
