Quilt Tutorial – Rococo Gardens

Share the love!

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.
