It’s week 3 in the Friendship Quilt Along and that means it’s time to share the Gracious quilt block. This little block is beyond cute and is so fun to make!

Friendship Quilt Pattern featuring the Gracious Block

Like block 1, this block design is right up my alley. The simple design allows me to combine two of my favorite techniques, applique & free motion thread painting.
