FREE Pattern

November 5, 2009

As promised a free pattern for you to enjoy, this is one of my favorite quilts because of the fabrics. For the small squares I fussy cut out of a big floral print, it still gives it a circular feeling. Enjoy!

Block Assembly
Begin by framing each one of the 4 1/2″ x 10 1/2″ rectangles and 4 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ squares of fabrics B, C & D.
Using the 1 1/2″ x 7 1/2″ as well as the 1 1/2″ x 10 1/2″ strips to frame each rectangle.
The plain 6 1/2″ x 6 1/2″ squares were fussy cut out of a large floral print, to give the illusion of circles.
