Quilt Tutorial – Rococo Gardens

Quilt Tutorial – Rococo Gardens

This quilt reminds me of Spring.  Perfect time to get this oldie but goodie back out!  You will be making a series of 8 quilt blocks and then sewing them into the top following a layout.  There are stems and flowers in the quilt– look closely 🙂 and really if you so wish you could play with the layout a bit and put together your own top.
