Skill Level: Early Intermediate (Mini) to Intermediate (Full Size) - This project is a great skill-builder! There is nothing particularly hard about this project, but there are tons and tons of seams and blocks ... so practicing accurate cutting and precision piecing skills are a must! I'll be here to with tips and tricks for every single step of the way, but if you're on the fence about taking on such a complex project, start with the mini quilt and see how it goes!
- Full Size: The full-sized version of this pattern includes instructions for both strip-piecing and traditional piecing, and you'll be able to use either method for the QAL. We'll have a little intro to strip-piecing segment before we start assembling any blocks, so if you haven't tried the method yet you, you'll have a chance to practice a bit before you have to choose a construction method!
- Mini Size: The mini-sized version of this pattern only includes instructions for traditional piecing. Because there is only one main block in the whole quilt, the strip-piecing method results in too much fabric waste to make it an economical option.
