This is WONDERFUL, what an amazing thing to do for those women. If I might ask, is there a quilt pattern or instructions for the African weave blocks that are in this story? The quilts are beautiful and I would love to purchase a pattern or instructions if available.

Sorry, we do not have a pattern for the woven African quiltlets. We pre-fuse 2 piece of fabric, cut them into strips then weave then together, then fuse them with an iron onto the batting.

My Best To You,
