And today we’re sharing a bonus quilt pattern from Kristin featuring frilly flowers. Download the pattern for FREE right now, compliments of Kristin and Martingale!

Kristin’s even included a tip for how she creates perfect circles for the flower centers:

Kristin says, “My favorite method for preparing appliqué circles is to use cardboard to make a template—recycled cereal boxes work great! Cut a cardboard circle the size of the appliqué. Trace the cardboard template outline onto the wrong side of the fabric. Cut out the fabric circle approximately ¼" beyond the drawn line. Hand or machine baste ⅛" from the edge of the fabric circle. Center the cardboard circle on the wrong side of the fabric circle, and then pull the basting stitches to neatly gather the fabric around the cardboard. Press the gathered edges, and then pop out the cardboard circle.
