Adult Victorian Hanger Covers

If you’re like me, I just love these Adult Victorian Hanger Covers that look pretty in my cupboard. These hanger covers fit a hanger 16 1/4 inches in length.

English Rose Garden QAUG Large Blocks are perfect to make a large quilt. The English Rose Garden Large Blocks are made by creating a fabric sand- wich, which is then marked to position 4 pieces of one design to make up the large block.
