FREE PATTERN FRIDAY: Brooke's Blossoms, Introductory Information

blog post cover image

We are starting a new adventure! This time, we will work on a full-sized quilt instead of a mini quilt. I am very excited about this colorful bouquet! Brooke's Blossoms finishes at 62 1/2" square, but contains many options for other sizes and layouts!

All blocks are made with Foundation Paper Piecing, and if you're new to FPP, I encourage you to check out my tutorials and tips on Instagram. Follow me: @crankykangaroo, and use #fppcrankykangarootut to find the videos!

About Brooke's Blossoms:

This is a medallion quilt, so it is worked from the center out. As we build, you can stop at any point and still have a finished quilt! You can also use the individual blocks in a variety of ways in other layouts or quilts! I will be sharing some mini quilt ideas as we go along!

This week, I will post the fabric requirements and some general information about the quilt. Here is our schedule for when the various blocks will be released:
