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!

Debbie--Hope you are as happy with this technique as I am. The red viewing strip just doesn't do it for me.

Not that I will be doing the BOM but I am enjoying reading the thought processes of how some of the variations came about. There might be a better place to share this tid bit of information but I couldn't help but post it here when the conversation went to making sure that fabrics offer enough contrast with the background. The easiest way to see if you have enough contrast is to take a photo of the swatches or lay your swatches on the photo copier or scanner. We always want everything in color. This is an exception. Print the photo/copy in black ink and you will see shades and degree of contrast. I have saved myself a lot of frustrations in my color choices with this technique.

That is a great tip. Thanks Agnes. I have used the red viewing strip but this sounds like an easier way for me to tell contrast and to determine lights, darks and mediums.

Alexandra your block is beautiful, your embroidery is a very nice touch. Thanks for sharing and I will look forward to seeing your quilt grow! I've completed the 15" block for my center, I'm now designing the corner blocks. It's really coming along nicely! This is fun!

What a fantastic job you are doing....very nice. You are really fast. I am still working on hand appliqueing my stems. I think I have over 12 hours into it....however, I am close to being finished.

BTW...if you click on the photos of the fabrics a couple of times you will get a closer view of them. I especially love the design that is in the ombre fabrics which you can see if you click on the close-up of the pink ombre!!
