    1. Hi Jessica! This is a traditionally pieced pattern. Kimberly will be sewing a tutorial of the block next year around the start of the quilt along.

  1. I am so excited about this pattern and using Lori’s fabrics to make the dresses. The dresses remind me of the dresses my mother and her sisters wore in the 1940’s and 50’s. My mother passed away when I was eleven. I know this quilt will be a wonderful reminder of my mother and aunts.

  2. I have a sister-in-law , Millie. She wanted me to make a quilt for her. When I saw the “ Millie’s Dresses” quilt, I knew what I’d make for her. Hope she’ll enjoy it as much as I’ll enjoy making it 😊
