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!

Lyn,
I know what you mean by trying to find balance. I don't think it's doable either. I've not been as active as I would like to be, I've spread myself across too many boards on this dang computer. My RR quilt is going to be scrappy-I'm going to spend as little money as possible here.

Mary, I love your colors, especially the green with pink-is that your focus fabric?

Ohhh. Takes my breath away it is so beautiful!!! I know somehow you have finagled a regular 48 hour day from the Good Lord. You couldn't get it all done otherwise!

I have admitedly not been participating this last year very much here on the boards as I've been trying to balance my life (but have sadly discovered it's not a do-able thing!) Now what the heck to do with that information is the big deal for 2011!

This quilt is so lovely, I may have to reconsider. I have 8 finished tops all lined up here waiting for me to begin quilting on my sit down HQ. But I don't have quilting plans for any of them. Hmmm.

Thanks for all you do for all of us Margo! You are a keeper.

As we are pretty much snowed in at the moment, with more on the way later today, I sure wish it were tomorrow and I had instructions to start the BOM. :D

JoJo,
I love your holly! That background is so cool-what is it and where did you get it? It gives me some ideas for another quilt.

Annis, your colors look yummy and luscious :D Your quilt is going to be great!

Happy New Year and may we all enjoy this new challenge together :!: :!: :!:

Tilt the blocks. Hmmm! Right now they are a square in a square in a square, although some of them start as rectangles. Maybe I need to play a little more in EQ7. Thanks for the idea.

It looks great JoJo! I have my smaller version designed and the fabrics ironed and ready to go. I found a few striped fabrics and a Christmas white on white so I will only have to use one fabric for the background and won't have to figure the yardage since I purchased plenty. Now it's time to do other things. Too bad work keeps getting in the way of our creativity.

I love striped fabrics and can't wait to see your design. I started wondering whether you might tilt the little blocks in your design??? Can't wait to see what you've designed.

Thanks for all the nice words on the holly leaves. It's been great fun working on this big block. I'm using freezer paper to unit applique (Jane Townswick's technique) the entire leaf, and once it is done I use Sharon's version of Ricky's stable stuff. I would have used Ricky's but I already own quite a bit of Sharon's so I'm using up my stash first. I must admit that getting good points has been a struggle because of all the seams either at or close to the point of the leaf. So thanks for the compliment on the points.
