Skill Level:  Beginner - Intermediate
Finished Size:  36" x 36"
Pattern Fee: $12.00

Although I categorized this as intermediate, I never want to discourage anyone willing to learn.  This is an applique pattern, but can be done by machine or hand.  I will teach you how to prepare the applique shapes by spray starch pressing, so each shape is just as identical as you can get, and very easy to applique in place using either method.
