I am so excited to announce that I will be co-hosting my first every QAL with none other than Jen from Sew Happy Geek! We have teamed up to create this newly designed quilt just for you!
The quilt is fairly straightforward, however, the woven blocks can present a bit of a challenge. This quilt will definitely stretch your skill set. We will be presenting you 2 different methods for assembling the woven blocks, regular piecing and paper piecing, try out both methods and decide which one works best for you. The finished quilt without borders is 60×60, with borders is 65×65.
