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!

I am doing this scrappy also. I have a background fabric that is neutral tan/cream roses. I'll have "rust-ish" roses with teals, grey/greens and multiples of everything in-between that I can find on my shelf. I started with a jellyroll I have and pulled fabrics in that color way. I picked my fabrics last night, but got done too late to photograph them. I'll do that tonight, if I can resist starting on the leaves and vine, lol. I also got the centerblock pattern onto my background fabric, so I can hardly wait to take the first stitch!

Yes, Yummy fabric, Eileen! One of the longarm quilters in my local groups sells Sew Batiks fabrics, and they all look wonderful! She gave each of us in the group a gift certificate for one yard -- oh boy!!

Geez, you're quick Margo. I didn't think anyone would be around this afternoon. I wish we could get a chat going for this project; set a time and sit and talk.

I've got 2 greens in the washer right now but you'll get the idea. These are a combination of batiks from Sew Batik, a couple of Stonehenge fabrics and several pieces I hand dyed in a class last June and have been waiting for the perfect project. Since it's going to be kind of scrappy, I don't have a focus fabric, I'm flying by the seat of my pants. :D

Sue, I love your fabric choices -- I don't think I'll make it to midnight -- I look for the first part in the morning.

Thnaks for all the kind comments on my fabric choices.

It feels like Christmas to me -- can hardly wait to get started.

Best wishes for the new year.

Judy

I have just finished ironing my background fabric. I'm all set to go. I'm using Sue's colors and will be doing a ruffled roses center block. I'm using my stash and found suitable fabric for all but a couple of the greens. My son picked those up for me when he picked up my grandson for the holidays. I'm going to do needle turn and by the looks of the vines and hearts picture that Margo put up, that part will be cutaway appique. This is actually my second applique project and I'm very excited to start. Will keep checking after midnight to see when the first part is up.
Here are my fabrics.

Judy -- your colors are wonderful. I can hardly wait to see all the Ruffled Roses varieties -- which if you think of it -- roses come in over 6500 varieties. 2011 is sure to become a wonderful garden.
