Gardens Of A King - English Paper Piecing, Applique and Wool Applique
This quilt measures 63.5" x 63.5".  

It is an interpretation of the King George III Coverlet, dated 1803.   The center block represents a formal garden
that may be found at an English Castle while the applique surrounding it are florals, fruits and herbs that were
used often for daily needs of that time period.  Surrounding the center are 16 different 6 3/4" blocks, repeated
twice in the center of the quilt.  Included are 25 block patterns to make this stunning quilt.  

Consider purchasing the pre-printed Premium Freezer Paper Packs.  These have the circular designs printed
on a single layer with extra sheets included for you to double the thickness for my EPP Starch Basting
Technique.   In addition, you  may want to purchase a pack of Premium Freezer Paper for the wool appliques.
