Meet Rose…a Quilted Beauty

May I introduce Rose, the first quilt in a new series of patterns, Colorful Petals, featuring the same technique of using both sides of one focus fabric as in Colorful Wings.Image of Quilt Hanging on Fence

Rose’s focus fabric, Bed of Roses by Geri Robinson by Red Rooster Fabrics, is shown in the accent strip on the left and the binding. The flowers are also made of the front side of this fabric. The vase is made from the reverse side. Isn’t that the most fabulous back It all started with Phoebee (Click here to see Designing Quilts by Chance) and the excitement over the backside of fabric continues!

Just like Phoebee, Belle, and Lily, Rose is a fast, fun wall hanging which makes it a great gifting quilt, as well as a pretty decoration in your sewing or dining room.

The key lies in the back of the focus fabric and testing values with your scrappy background. (Click here to see The Tricky Traits of Value).

    Yes! Me, too, and wondering if the gals at the shop are getting tired of me messing up their pretty bolts. Just can’t seem to get them to lay as neatly as they do.
