It’s cleverly written with good shopping instructions, covering fat 1/4’s as well as background, borders, backing and binding – so great if you are starting from scratch. There are also great cutting instructions. AND if you are a seasoned
sewer with stash, you can raid this too as the instructions are so clear.. Buy Now+
