Today we have a lovely quilt block pattern from Melanie Rudy over at Quilters… Enjoy Color! Melanie has studied fashion design and sewing in her native Canada, where she currently resides. She was a FaveQuilts Top Blogger in 2014, so naturally we’re thrilled to have her on the blog today! This tutorial will teach you all you need to know about how to make a quilt block that looks like a lovely wildflower. You can find part two here, showing you how to put the quilt together! Without further ado, here’s Melanie’s quilt block pattern, originally featured over at her blog.
