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!

Eileen, I'm with you. I got my ring binder and diary yesterday. Am tracing my pattern onto stable stuff, and doing final fabric shopping tomorrow. Hopefully I can then get started.

I have my 3 ring binder and page protectors AND I have my planner. Why I didn't think of it at first I don't know. I'll use it as my engagement calendar. :D :D :D

It's hard to say, Eileen! The size of the circles added in month 12 will depend on the width of the floater strip you add. Sue's directions call for strips cut 1-7/8", less seam allowance, which would be 1-3/8", but the circle doesn't necessarily have to be that large. And your floater may be a different width! So....the size isn't critical!

I love how Sue teaches us how to make things work out to be pleasing to our own tastes! :D

Margo,
I have the small "Perfect Circle" set by Karen Kay Buckley. How large is the largest circle on this quilt? I only see the berries and the floaters.

Ken,
I've been saving all the patterns to folders on my computer but I never thought about a cd!! Thanks for the idea. That way, if the 'puter crashes, I won't lose anything.
I can print off templates as I need them from the cd. Good on ya, Ken :D :D

Margo, I don't save templates. I keep electronic copies, all in PDF format. Then I burn all the files onto the one CD.

Great idea, Ken! Do you save your templates, or plan to make new ones if you make another quilt? If you save them, what do you store them in?
Inquiring minds want to know! I have entirely too many stuffed notebooks in my bookcase! :roll:

I've been doing that for all the BOM's - keeps everything together and organized. I'm liking the idea of a Christmas quilt. Maybe I'll do this year's BOM after all. I still haven't quilted the first one or finished the tops on the rest. Other projects keep getting in the way.

My notebook is a pretty shade of pink with really cool clips inside that open with a push of a button! I love Office Depot. :)
