Flat Front Panel Skirt (free pattern sz 2 to 10)

While shopping at my local fabric store a few weeks back, I spotted a display of gorgeous fall fabric prints.  I took my time browsing through all the fabrics and started to group them into coordinating print bundles for what could be a gorgeous fall themed quilt.

Then, I remembered the two quilt tops that were finished well over a year ago and still need to be quilted.  I also thought about the all the coordinating pattern bundles I already have in my stash for future quilts; and decided, perhaps maybe something smaller would be a better project choice!

A must make: Easy to sew, Flat Front skirt pattern and tutorial for girls.  This multi-paneled version is a fabulous way to show of your favorite fabric combos or seasonal prints!
