Love the Patterns! — Review by Patty Martin
Overall Rating
I'm so excited that AQS has decided to share some of the Tentmakers of Cairo patterns with us. I've followed the Tentmakers since I first heard about them a couple of years ago. I don't know that I could ever use the appliqué method the Tentmakers do, but I think I can manage to use one of our traditional appliqué methods to replicate a couple of these patterns. I'm anxious to try! (Posted on 1/4/14)
