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, I'm glad you got your center applique the way you wanted it. I'm looking forward to seeing it. I'm starting to get excited about my center also. I'll be doing a pieced center from Jinny Beyer's new BIG book of blocks. It goes with my tree theme. I'll probably be paper piecing the center and I'm thinking of using Ricky's stable stuff as my base instead of paper. Anyone have any suggesetions or thoughts? Thanks!

I use Mylar washers if I want perfect sized berries. A friend of mine gave them to me, they are great. However, most of the time, as I am a non-perfect applique person, I just use really good freezer paper. :lol:

That's a very good idea. He really flipped in a good way for that yellow fabric. Heck, he'd be happy if I just sewed big squares of yellow fabric together and gave it to him. :lol: Remember, he's color blind on every color BUT yellow so I always have to add in yellow.

Janice, I've primarily used freezer paper, but I'm planning on using a no melt plastic for the berries and freezer paper on the rest.

Oh, JoJo, you tease!!! I can't wait until January! How wonderful that you reached "the moment" though -- what an exhilarating feeling that is! You've just given me an idea, though. Maybe my Christmas version won't be a full-sized quilt -- maybe a wall quilt. Hmmmm ...

I finished my drawing and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it. The more I kept thinking about the block, the more ideas I kept coming up with. It all started blending together until I had the 'moment.' I drew and erased, drew some more on my computer screen until I started liking what I was seeing. The finishing touches were made this morning while downing 4 cups of coffee and pulling my hair because I'm just learning my software. I emailed my hubby and he gave it the Hubby-Sign-of-Approval so next is making my templates.

I was going to post a picture but I thought it would be more fun for you to see the finished block instead. My hopes are to get all my templates (and there are many) done this weekend and maybe even get some fabric cut. Guess, I'd better wash up some of my Christmas fabrics tonight!

When Tracy (my hubby) looked at the 2011 BOM posted on TQS, he immediately shouted oooohhhh I love that yellow fabric in Sue's version! Which of course I do too. I wish I were more prolific like some of you are so I could make two versions of the 2011 -- one in the yellow and one Christmas. Maybe I will do a smaller lap version in the yellow just for him.

There will be kits available for purchase, but because it is new fabric the kits won't be available until the end of Jan or so. So you have the option of using a kit of one of the two colorways offered or you can use your own fabrics. Whichever you prefer.

Gorgeous! If I'm understanding correctly, we are to purchase fabric on our own. Not purchase a 'kit' from this site?

I might need to get a few more pinks, and of course, some white for some of the background pieces :)

There is about 75 FQ's in there so I think that should pretty much cover it with the exceptions mentioned above.

I love your colors, Tammy! Just be aware that those light yellows and light neutrals will not show up much against a light background. I ran into that issue with the Beloved Beauties version, but I just had a few that blended into the background so I just left them to make your eyes dance around the quilt top.

You are probably going to want to check those with your background fabric to make sure there is enough value difference (contrast) to show up all your work!

It will be a happy quilt!
