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 flower gardens to our quilts.
We’ve gathered together a dozen free patterns bursting with blossoms just for you!
