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!

Margo,
Once you're home, I hope you post the scrappy version. I'm going to be "shopping my stash" for this one. I have some of Ricky's gorgeous 8) hand dyes that I've been holding onto and some luscious batiks as well.

Hi Margo, this quilt is beautiful and I know I want to use the stripes in it somewhere. Also, I think this quilt lends itself to some beading as well. It is just beautiful. Thank you for the posting. Regards, Pamela

The most challenging part of the new BOM is making the commitment to "just do it!" Yes, it will take some time. Again, this is not a quilt to make in a day, but it is definitely a do-able project. The appliqué can be done with your favorite method (or try a different technique?) and the piecing is small pieces and some paper piecing on the sampler blocks. That's it! Sue's directions are for needle-turn appliqué, and I'll be adding a separate tute whenever I do anything different, but we both would like to see you make it [url]your[/url]way!

One really cool thing about this year's project is that like Nancy commented about the first 4 months, it looks like that's the complete quilt. Or you could just add the next row of pieced blocks and appliquéd corners. Or you can add the last pieced border and change the corners there, like I did on my first sampler version. Make it yours! There are several places to stop and call it done! Not just another UFO, but a finished project! Cool, huh!

Because of the designs in this line of fabrics, I've had to change the directions for which fabrics to use where, but I'll have directions explaining all the changes I've done. Of course, you can change that too! Make it your way....one step at a time! :D

It looks like a finished quilt top already and that's only the first four months? I want to make this one too, but I must admit that it looks very challenging.

OK, I think I'm legal in posting now. Here is the center part of my version of the TQS BOM done in the BELOVED BEAUTIES fabric designed by Elly Sienkiewicz. This is the first four months worth of directions.
There will be pictures of Sue's original version soon, I promise!!

No, Happy. This year there is ONE quilt design, but fabric kits will be offered in two completely different colorways. One is all pastels and one is the new BELOVED BEAUTIES fabrics. They are both dy-na-mite quilts!!
