She used traditional fabrics with the nontraditional set.

Whose? Set for 12 blocks: simple and balanced.

I was following the westerning woman block of the month and then we moved. In the move I lost several of the patterns. Is there a place I can get the directions all of the blocks in this quilt? Thanks.
