The iconic masterpiece, the Rose window in the Notre Dame cathedral is elegantly captured in Kaffe Fassett Collective fabrics. Using Robin Ruth Design's strip-piecing method, create a striking center medallion surrounded by fussy cut "stained glass" window pieces. Kit includes fabrics for the top and binding, pattern from Robin Ruth Design, Fat Robin 16-Point Mariner’s Compass book-and-ruler combination, and the 32-Point Mariner's Compass book-and-ruler combination. If you purchase just the pattern, you will also need to order both of the book-and-ruler combinations to make the completed quilt.

Its been years since I have had so much fun making a quilt!!!! This design and technique was an absolute joy to learn and implement. I took a 7 day vacation to make this from washing to completing the top and I got it done. Robin Ruth's design and ruler construction process is sheer genius!!! You must be diligent in following her directions. This is an intermediate challenge quilt.
The reason I didn't give this a 5 star rating was because there were 2 fabrics which were cut short and I had to write to Keepsake to make the corrections. For the first I was able to piece the scraps to complete the one piece that I fell short on. The second was a mis-cut by Keepsake. They responded immediately to my alerting them of this error, and sent out the corrected piece. You must be quite diligent to ensure that you measure 3 x and cut once as there is little room for error.
