Hi all – Happy Mother’s Day to you! I spent last evening with my Mom and sister…..it was prom night for my niece so we had to do all the girly things and then watch the promenade. It was a lot of fun. Dinner afterwards made for a late night, but hey, those are the best right?

Prom Dress

As promised, today I’m sharing the pattern I purchased in support of #MayIsForMakers. The pattern is an applique block called Flower Box written by Leanne of Devoted Quilter.

So, you know me and applique! I’m definitely not good at it but am trying to learn. I liked this pattern when Leanne released it in December but wasn’t quite ready to jump in and make it. Now is the perfect time for me to give it a go.

Leanne put four of the blocks together and made a mini quilt. She used just one block for the pillow above. I think a mini might be doable so that is my goal. Just need to get some fabrics picked out and then I’ll be ready to try.

I first met Leanne during the 2014 New Quilt Blogger’s Blog Hop. It has been so much fun watching her grow as a blogger and pattern designer. Leanne writes a Devotion post every Monday and I enjoy reading those. She’s also started her first Mystery Quilt Along called Just The Basics – it’s not too late to join in!

Now for a public service announcement. πŸ˜‰
