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!

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.

JoJo, it's wonderful!! Can't wait to see the whole block! The colors are wonderful! And what fun background fabric! I spent some time working on my partridge design this morning (almost ready to show, but not quite), but I was really stealing time from work, so I hafta be a good girl the rest of today, sigh ...

Since I love to do freezer paper, needle-turn, applique, your picture gives me a much better idea of what I will be doing. Thank you again Margo.

Yes mam! About 1/4", but it's not separate stems. Sue has designed the stem element to be one piece of fabric that is appliquéd onto the background:
Here is my Stable Stuff foundation glued onto the back of the stem fabric. It will be trimmed and the edges glued to the back of the foundation before it gets appliquéd to the background.

I have a question about the center applique....I am wondering about the width of the stem.....is it about 1/4 inch?

Thank you! :D

Glad to have you join us, Alice, and welcome to the forum! For what it's worth, the fabric in the Beloved Beauties kit also feels wonderful to work with!

I got 3 small pieces of fabric from the Bear Essentials line, and a small amount of the white on white. I wanted to feel the fabric, test it for running and shrinkage, in general, just experiment with it so I could know if I would be comfortable with it. Well...it is terrific. It looks beautiful and feels very soft. The white on white is a perfect choice for the white parts. Its' tiny vines and flowers look complimentary to the quilt design. I think the fabric is a great density for hand applique. So that did it for me. I am going with the Bear Essentials kit. I am very excited about the project. Dont know if I would take on a project with so many different (and new to me) processes, but since we will get such great advice and have each others hands to hold...I'm on board.
