It’s time for the next step of our Blackbirds & Blossoms Oh-La-La Quilt-Along! I’m hoping you’ve had lots of fun working on the center wreath over the past few weeks.

Panel 1(A)

Let’s start with the minimal designs first, Side Panels 1(A) and 1(B).

I urge you to play with your fabrics and shapes to create your own original design that plays well with the fabrics you have chosen and your completed center wreath block.

Supplies for Side Panels

To keep a flowing curve, I decided to cut my vines directly in the shape you see, not using the bias strip method. Feel free to use the method that works best for you.
