Pastel Pears Wall Quilt

Combine a fruit shape with pastel floral fabrics to create a well-balanced design. Use the same cream tone-on-tone for the appliqué foundations and the rectangles and Four-Patch units in the pieced blocks to play up the chain effect. Fabrics are from the Mary Rose Charlotte collection from Quilt Gate.
