So sweet is a beginning quilters dream, with no challenging angles or intricate piecing. The blocks are large enough to showcase some of the fabulous large-scale prints or even story-book designs which would overpower a smaller pieced block. It is a great quilt to feature some treasured fat quarters from your stash or larger remnants from previous favourite projects. This quickly-made project is sure to be enjoyed for years to come.
