The result was a tiny replica of each dress, appliqued to a background square to form a quilt block. Several blocks were combined into a quilt. Embroidery, smocking and other details were added to each little dress.
Over time Karon created patterns and kits for each of the little dress blocks. Now there are over 36 patterns, including a line of fairy tale dresses and christening gowns.

Each dress block is 12″ square and can be made into a pillow, a mini quilt or framed for the wall. A quilt made from 12 blocks, with 1″ sashing and a 4″ border, is about 50″ x 64″.
