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!

I trace my blocks onto Staedtler 18" wide x50yds sketch Paper. I get it at Hobby Lobby or an art store. I can keep the paper in a sheet protector and in my note book. I did a quilt with the vinyl and then had to find a way to keep it from sticking together and storing it. The paper can be taken with me and I just find it easier to use.

Margarita, that sounds like a really good idea! I don't like using the vinyl, and I usually use Suzanne Marshall's take-away applique method, but I think I'll look for some of the pattern eze and try it! Thank you!

I use "Pattern Eze" (it is used to make a muck pattern, for checking fit of garments) to make my overlays. I get it at JoAnn's by the yard.
I draw the pattern on it then sew it to the top of the background. This way it is always in the same position.
You set a applique piece, then roll the overlay to the top end of the block and safety piece while appliqueing
the piece. (I learned this from a class I took from Karen Kay Buckley)

That was the technique that I used for the Bouquets for a New Day BOM in 2008! Here is the tutorial I did for that one, if you are interested:

Yes, if I understand what you mean by overlay. I am using a thin plastic that I got from the quilt store. I drew the design on it and add the applique underneath each time using the plastic to keep my placement from getting wonky on me.

Does anyone use the overlay method? I took a class from Becky Goldsmith about 7 or 8 years ago and learned the Piece O'Cake way to do things. I think I may use it for this project too. Is anybody else thinking of using it?
