Crossweave

Taught by Amy Smart

Class Description

This fun baby quilt (41” x 47”) is deceptively easy and fun to make. It’s a great project for using Charm Packs and Jelly Roll (2 ½” strip) pre-cuts and extra fun because it’s a great one for pulling together a scrappy look. Pattern and measurements available for throw or twin size if you want to make something larger.
