Free Patchwork Pear Mini Quilt Pattern

I have one more mini fruit wallhanging up my sleeve! This little pear looks great with the Mini Pineapple, Mini Orange and Mini Apples. If I ever have wall space in a future kitchen space, I imagine a little wall collage. For now, they are making my mini wall even cuter!
