Are you ready to start another new day with a new pattern?

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!

Jo Jo, it looks like you are having fun already! By using your own design for the center medallion, you are able to start sooner. I consider this my "handicap" (like in golf or bowling) as I am a very slow quilter! lol I'm looking forward to seeing pictures of your progress, and envying the fact that you will look at Christmas all year long!

Your photos sure make me ready to start this project. I didn't think I was going to be able to but I can thanks to a wonderful and generous quilt show friend. I will be using my stash and much of it will be scrappy. I look forward to you additonal hints to Sue's wonderful instgructions.

I'm thinking of doing Christmas colors also but with batiks so it would prob have a very different look. http://appleblossomquilts.danemcoweb.com/shop/category/patterns/ This site has some poinsettia and holly appliques if you want other ideas. I have one of the patterns and may pull a center block from it. I would really like to do this in several colorways but need to settle on one soon.

JoJo, your Christmas colors are wonderful!! I don't think the poinsettia would be that hard to do -- I've been collecting poinsettia designs because I love them. I'd be happy to help you with the design if you like. Goodness, everyone's colors are so wonderful -- I want to make about 6 of this quilt now!

Actually, yes I would love to have some help. Thank you for the offer. My flower is okay, but it's nice to have a 'melding of the minds' so to speak! :lol:

Jo Jo, your quilt is going to be awesome! Very rich colors! I can actually visualize this one! You could actually do a holly leaf heart medallion, and poinsettia flowers in place of the roses, to go along with the Christmas theme. A little more work, but a lot of fun!

Thanks so much for the suggestions Dawn. I ate dinner and then have been drawing holly leaves and poinsettias all night.

Well, start picking out some fabric and we can play together! :D I've been playing with the center adding holly leaves and I think I've just about got the poinsettia flower to fit.

Margo, I love your quilt! I saw Sue's quilt in person in Houston and had decided to do that color wave, but now I'm on the fence after seeing yours. They are both beautiful quilts. I like the piping and your quilting is very pretty.

Thanks Debbie! The center of my quilt top was also in Houston, but it was displayed under the TV where the videos were playing, so you probably couldn't see it well. The colors really are much prettier "in person"! :D

Thanks for all the suggestions. I did look at some gold fabrics initially but couldn't find quite the right shades. I'll keep looking.

Great ideas of holly leaves! I think I can manage that. The poinsettia flowers however may be a bit much for me because the roses look kind of small and making a poinsettia flower that small might put me over the deep end. :shock: I love the idea though and may play around with drawing once I see the instructions and how much room I have to play with.

JoJo, the center appliquéd block FINISHES at 15" x 15" if that helps you with your design. With the setting triangles to set it on point, the center will then measure 21-1/4" FINISHED SIZE. See what you can do within those measurements! :D

Jo, Jo, I love the idea of your making this quilt a Christmas quilt and you've done a fabulous job with your fabric selection. I can't wait to see this one when it's finished!
