For each of us, gardening means something a little different. For some it is about lessons learned, for others flowers represent a time of healing or replenishing, and for you it may be something completely different. In so many ways, quilting teaches and heals us, so of course, we want to add a flower garden to our quilts.
We’ve gathered together a dozen free patterns bursting with blossoms just for you!
