The pattern finishes at 24” square as written, making it a perfect mini quilt or pillow, but you can continue to grow your piece to any size or use small sections of the pattern for other applications.

The pattern includes printable templates and pattern papers.

I believe that any level sewist can create this pattern, even EPP beginners! Complete instructions on EPP are not included, but many tutorials can be found online.

I hosted a sew along for this pattern last year where I shared many helpful tips, tutorials and step-by-setp videos for working through this pattern.

I bought this pattern for the quilt a long and have just finished piecing it! It was an easy to use pattern and came together easily. I wouldn’t say it’s a beginner pattern, but if you take it slowly and line up your pieces properly you will have success! Thanks for the beautiful pattern 💕

It's my first paper piecing quilt. So far so good!! Easy to follow. I'm new to quilting so this has been so fun for me. Thanks!!

I haven’t actually had the chance to print out and use this pattern yet, but her patterns are superb! I have tried some of her other patterns and they turned out beautifully!
