We do not have this on our class schedule, but it is hands down the cutest quilt I’ve ever seen. I have kits with everything you need to make the blocks. One would be an adorable wall hanging for a little girl’s room. If you can’t stop with one you can make more. There are so many cute ones to choose from. The kits are made with the best quality fabrics and threads. The fabric is pleated and ready for smocking. You can also embellish them however you like. The photo is only 4 blocks but you can make the larger quilt if you like. It won "Best of Show and Viewers Choice" at the 2016 Davies Manor Quilt & Fiber Arts Show.
