Easy in every way

Step by step instructions from even how to print to how to sew with suggestions of materials and sewing manners and keeping the environment in mind. It's worth the price as you know that stores ask much more money for a finished blanket like this.

Leaf Blanket

Easy to follow instructions. Nieces were thrilled with the results. Thank you

So Adorable

I'm in love with the Leaf Blanket, so detailed and so many different options. Clearly a lot of thought went into this pattern. I think its for a fantastic cause and would definitely recommend this to anyone. My grandkids love their leaf blankets!!

Lovely Leaves

This is a wonderful pattern, very nicely detailed and educating those of us who are not familiar with New Zealand trees! I have 2 grandchildren on the way as well as 4 already here so I plan to make quite a few of these this spring!

Easy to use patterns

Thank you for your easy to use patterns, they are a joy to sew up

Leaf bundle

Really good patterns. So far Ive made a picnic blanket, backed with oilcloth, a baby blanket, a doll blanket, and in the middle of a set of 6 tablemats. So much versatility in one pattern. Thank you

Wonderful pattern!

The directions were so easy to follow and had great tips along the way. I made 3 large child sized blankets the first week I had the pattern! I have done some machine quilting before, but it never comes out how I hope. This time it was perfect and I plan on using what I learned with this pattern on all my future quilts and blankets!
