Create this block and turn it into a pillow to bring a touch of loving romance into your boudoir, or make it as a block to fit into a quilt. Add the Victorian Flower Garden Quilt IV Expansion pattern - with an applique wrought iron gate to sash and border your lovely garden of flowers to make the Victorian Flower Garden Quilt IV.

Bring a touch of Spring & Summer inside.

Rose is a small, lovely project for a first foray into the world of reverse needle-turn applique - perfect for beginning quilters.

Pattern includes all three directions for creation.

  • Reverse applique by hand
