I'm pretty pleased with this tower of drawers - - I will tuck it into a corner, and load it up with precut kits and UFO's that are scattered in different places in my sewing studio.

Apple Crisp by Jan Ragaller
Plaid Tidings by Kathie Holland
The paper foundation piecing PDF for the square-in-a-square sub-blocks are downloadable from
