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!

Don't worry, Janice, slow and steady is just fine! I managed only to get three leaves of my Hugs & Kisses quilt done today, so you were a whole lot more productive than I was. I also do needle-turn ... slowly :wink:

Thank you.....I am working on it right now. I should have the stems finished by this evening. I am very slow at needle turn, but it is going well. Grin

Yesterday I traced the stems for the Ruffled Roses onto freezer paper. Then I ironed it onto my fabric, and cut it all out, leaving a quarter of an inch for my needle turn. I sat down at 3:00pm in the afternoon, and I appliqued until 10:00pm. I finished exactly one half, the inside, of the stem that creates the heart (I am very slow). Grin
This afternoon I plan on sitting down again, and finishing the stems. Tomorrow.....leaves!!!!!! :P

Okay guys, here is my first section. I am loosely basing this on Sue's ruffled roses quilt but a fall theme just kept recurring to me. This is a big leap for me as I have always stuck with what the designer did and also the purchased kit. I am going to try to get past my mental block and choose my own colors out of my stash. Hope you guys don't mind. The color doesn't show much but it is a dark green setting triangles. The light was not that great today here.

Margo, I just read Sue's link that you posted. I just joined the Quilt Show today and did not realize all she is growing through right now. I really don't know what to say. I will keep Sue and her family in my prayers and in my heart.

Sue does get to the forum occasionally, and I know that she is uplifted by notes left for her on that topic. Please add to it if you would like!

Thanks Margo about the info on the background fabric! I was just looking at the thread with the error in introduction but it looks like they are talking about the practice paper pieced pattern. So should I make sure the Block one pattern has a 1 inch square when printed?

Month one should print out so that the master applique design measures less than 15" x 15" (finished size). The outside edges on that pattern will NOT measure 7-1/2". Don't worry about that....just make sure the design itself is inside the 15" square.
