FREE PATTERN FRIDAY: Brooke's Blossoms Week 11

blog post cover image

This week we continue with the outermost border. I have a lot of houseplants, and my "a lot", I actually mean: more than I know what to do with. I have been collecting even more plants over the summer, and have yet to see how they're all going to fit inside. By far, Ficus is one of my favorite species. They range from tall trees, to small desktop plants. It is a varied species that includes the popular Fiddle Leaf Fig.

This week's block is a simple greenery square, and I think it reminds me of a Ficus Benjamina branch.

Happy Sewing!

About Brooke's Blossoms: This is a medallion quilt that 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! 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!
