I am making a "porch quilt" using a free block pattern from Moda Fabrics. I thought I would share my project as I made it. So something new for our group!
Week 1 will be to make the flower portion of the block. I am including videos for those who are visual learners, and some written instructions as well.
By the way, I am going to make 3 of these blocks to make my Porch Quilt, but you can use it for other things, including a pillow, table runner, placemats, bag, and a quilt of any size.
