Rose Dream Quilt

Project #13873

There's a reason why this quilt is a dream. It's because it has all the imaginative uses of color and creativity and even an optional Drunkard's Path design. Whether you use scraps or rows of specific colors, this dream will look alive in anyone's home.

  4. Sew from intersection dot to intersection dot when one is available. See Diagram 3.
