Are you ready to start another new day with a new pattern? I hope so – life is great and affords us many opportunities to start fresh and new – and today is a great day to start making a new quilt: Ruffled Roses. Each month, you will find the pattern for part of this quilt online. Just print the instructions, cut, stitch, press… and before you know it, time will have passed, and you will be ready to enjoy your own Ruffled Roses quilt. What a wonderful way to start each month!

Re: 2011 BOM 20 Nov 2010 09:12 #51411

I have a question about printing out the patterns. I KNOW how to paper piece, and don't need to practice it, but I still don't know how to get the pattern to print out the exact right size. I have printed out Page 6 (with the 1" box on it) several times. I was able to get the 1" box to come out perfect BUT the pattern next to the 1" box with the little house on it is not the right size. I think it is supposed to measure 4 1/2". It is too small. If the 1" box is right, but the pattern is not -- what do I do next?

I noticed that they have the Introduction PDF available now that says how much total fabric you will need and shows a little snippets of the P&B fabrics she used. This is really going to be a treasure quilt.

Great to see all the colorways. When I went to the booth on Wed at Houston and saw the quilts I knew I liked Elly's fabric. Then I met Sue and Margo at the booth. Margo talked about her verson which was done by machine. At that time my shopping stopped at the show because I knew I wanted to use Elly's fabric. I have always used my own stash but this time I want to get a kit. I love to applique Baltimore Album style quilts and that was the reason I went for the first time to the Houston show. My applique group had made a quilt for Elly and it was in the special display and her new book. I know this quilt will combine applique and paperpiecing that I also like to do. Sue's quilts are the reason I still belong to the site as they feed my soul. I am also starting Sue's Ladies of the Sea applique quilt as I now feel ready to tackle it after making her other 2 hand applique ones. Thanks Sue and Margo.

I just finished reading all the posts on the new BOM and I am having to calm down my mind...so many wonderful choices. And on top of it all even though I always print out the patterns for the BOM's I wonder if I will ever just go for it and do one...I am pulled in that direction on this quilt so maybe this is the one. I will make a decision in January I guess, but for now I have thought I would check out my stash and see what is lurking there that would make a beautiful 2011 BOM. :) :?

Thank you, Margo. That helps a lot! And yes, I'll be sure to post photos. I was looking at the three colorways, and like many of the others, I couldn't decide which I like best -- they're all wonderful! So, I asked my husband what colors I should use for the quilt, and he suggested blue and green. So, I've been looking for blue and green border fabric. I found a couple I liked, but then I found the new Adelaide collection from In the Beginning ... aha!!! http://www.inthebeginningfabrics.com/cgi-server/itb/displayfab.cgi?product=adlade. And, as it turns out, I picked up a fat quarter in the red version of the stripe on my trip to Houston (in the most wonderful quilt store in Kerrville, Texas), but I think I'll use the blue version, and I'm even thinking of using black or a very dark blue behind the lattice and swag borders, but we'll see ...
Hugs, Robin

Robin, the block I made finishes at 21-1/2", and I'm requesting 1-14 yard of that fabric for the kits to allow room for everyone to decide how they want the corners to look and to have some left for the basket and border pieces. You can pretty much decide how to cut the triangles by using 2 (12" x 12") mirrors hinged in the middle (I used duct tape) and moving them around the fabric to find a pleasing motif. You will have to show us what you are working on! :D

Thank you, Margo. I just want to do corners like you did. I've only seen the fabric online, but I have a fat quarter of it in a different colorway. From that, I'm guessing there will be three of the main stripe I want to catch (each of which is 3.25 inches) across the width of the fabric. The stripes run parallel to the selvage. The pattern between the stripes is fine to use however much of it fits. That space is 7 inches, but I wouldn't need to use all of it. I just don't have a sense of how large that portion of the quilt is. You are a wonder, and I appreciate your help! Hugs, Robin

Good question, Nancy. Thank you for asking. I have a similar question: Margo, in your Beloved Beauties version, you used a striped fabric just outside the very center medallion, and it looks like you've mitered the corners to get the effect. I've found a striped fabric that I would love to use the same way. Can you tell me how much I should order? Thank you! Robin

Robin, that's a tough one. It depends on the scale of the stripe and how many repeats there are across the yardage, and how large the mitered area is. Is it just a corner like I did on this block, or are you talking about mitering the ends of borders?
If you want to do just corners like in this block, you will need to make a triangular template, including the seam allowances and be sure that you can get 4 matching repeats and 4 reverse image repeats. Hope that helps!

There will be directions for making the miter in the January BOM instructions for what I did on the Beloved Beauties.

I sure hope that this is not a duplicate request. There will be some great sales on batiks over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend and I'd like to take advantage of these sales to purchase some of the fabrics for my 2011 BOM. Is it possible that we can get the fabric requirements early?

OOOH, Margo! I had to wipe the drool from my keyboard! I love the scrappy version. I wasn't quilting in 1963 but I've accumulated a pretty good stash so I'm going to shop there before I go to any stores. January is going to be very exciting here at TQS!!! :D :D :D
