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!

Oh my! I may have to do this BOM! And I think I just may be buying a kit!

LOL!! Thanks, JoJo! No one has claimed this one, but last Monday I gave my chocolate and pink 2010 Hugs and Kisses to my nephew's fiancé. Her eyes just lit up when she saw that one, so I gave it to her before they left. I don't usually give wedding quilts, 'cause you never know how long they will be together, but they have been dating for 3 years already, and she is a sweet girl. Apparently she has sort of permanently borrowed the one I made for Chris's graduation, so now he can have his own back!! LOL!!

Margo, you have such a good eye for doing scrappy and making it look really good. Have any family members put dibs on this new quilt yet?

Uh uh!! :shock: Pam Kittie had nothing to do with my scrappy version!! Alex's pretty reds don't include Pepto Bismol pink, and the Go Cutter doesn't do these shapes!!

My completed version is all scrappy stuff from my stash, but I'm going to make a second version with the Beloved fabrics, and can hardly wait to get my hands on 'em! :D

Ooh Nancy -- those colors are going to be beautiful. I think the 2011 BOM will be my favorite so far.

I have some of Ricky's beautiful hand dyed fabrics (one yard each in yellow, green, orange, purple and multi) that I've been waiting years for just the right project. :oops: This quilt is perfect and, with all of the BOM support from TQS, I won't be so afraid of cutting into these expensive fabrics for it. Thankfully, I can get started on this project before my fabrics start to dry rot. I love that the 2011 TQS BOM will be both pieced and appliqued, because I really want to learn how to applique better. "Ruffled Roses" is a real beauty.

Our Official Reveal date for the BOM 2011 is the first day of Festival November 4, 2010. We are very excited about the BOM for next year. It combines piecing and applique and looks like a 9 in difficulty but is just a 6-7 according to Sue and Margo. There will be 2 colorways for the kits. The first is the quilt that Sue did and the second is Elly's new fabric line and will be very rich and fun. Margo's quilt is stunning and explains where Pam Kittie hid all of Alex's red fabrics. Here is a peek at some of Elly's new line.

I'll have to check with the powers that be about that! All I can tell you at this point is that the one I have on the frame is scrappy! No surprise there, huh?

Margo, I'm convinced you have a hummingbird heart , run like a cheeta, and leap tall buildings in a single bound. Besides, you would be the perfect new pitch man for the Eveready battery company. She keeps on stitching and stitching. :D

Woe is me -- I manage to make one quilt top every 23 years and you make 23 a year :!:

I know...it is all about the cheddar yellow fabric. I bought some yardage of that wonderful color this summer intending to use it in a feathered star quilt, but...this quilt of Sue's is calling me. Maybe I'll just use it in this quilt. I have not done a Quilt Show BOM...or any BOM so maybe it is time I tried. You have to admit it ...Sue can make a wonderful quilt! (but can I?)

You absolutely CAN make a wonderful quilt. And, you have a great head start with that yummy fabric. Now, I'm going to be looking everything for Yellow!
