Spring Fling Free Quilt Pattern

I designed this Free quilt pattern "Spring Fling" to go with the Baltimore Spring fabric line using the preprinted  blocks and coordinating fabrics. The 12" preprinted block is surrounded  by charming Churn Dash pieced quilt blocks with the 6" panel motifs featured in the center of each block. This quilt can easily be made bigger by adding more blocks. Pattern requires 2 printed panel.

The finished quilt size is 50" x 74" and uses 14 small 6" blocks and 1 large 12" center block.
