Crisp and clean design lines are colored to bend.  Image is everything and that image is controlled by color placement and precision piecing.  Learn the butterfly seam, the criss-cross seam, and how to inlay a star in a pieced background.  The entire design is machine pieced…  It’s easier than you can imagine!  Size: 38” x 43”
