Common Bride QA - Flower Block - Week 7

Welcome to our Common Bride Quilt Along!

This week lets add some beautiful blossoms to our quilt.

I love this simple block, and with a touch appliqué it will be a perfect border around the center of our quilt.

I am quilting using the Common Bride Fabric Kit and adding some scraps from my stash.

You can use this same kit or this is a perfect time to select some beauties from you own stash and enjoy all your fabrics to make this design your own!

Who's ready to garden?

Please don't forget to refer back to your Common Bride pattern for cutting measurements.
