Inner City Quilt Tutorial Pattern
Approximate finished Lap Quilt size: 60" x 82"
Approximate finished Wall Hanging size: 45" x 52"
Our Quilts of Valor group leader booked a quilt retreat for us up in the mountains. The theme was Quilts of Valor. We were to work on QOV quilts for the week. The piecing for the QOV took me three days. I designed this pattern for those who do not have a design wall to lay out their pieces. I also wanted to use pieces large enough to use a print as my focus fabric. I love 3D Quilts!
