Think of it as thrift, as a gift

Hi!

So I have this pretty cool cherry blossom that I embroidered on linen, about 8"x8" and would like to somehow make it into a quilt wall hanging. Anyone know where I can find a simple pattern to do something like this? Or have any easy step by step directions? I've never quilted before, and thought this would be a cool way to start.  It doesn't have to be big and fancy, just something that would look nice on a wall.

Thanks!!!!

if you google Log Cabin pattern or Courthouse Steps, both of those are really common to frame a particular piece of embroidery. There are so many variations of those two patterns, and you should be able to easily modify it to show what you want. If you post a picture of the embroidery I can certainly recommend something more specific.
