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!

Are you saying that the pattern printed out wrong, or that you can't get it transferred to the fabric?

Do either of my centers look unbalanced to you? Even though the pattern is not EXACTLY symmetrical, I don't think it really matters as long as all of the parts fit inside of the 15" x 15" finished dimension. My stems were done following the printed pattern, but the berries and leaves and flowers were just "eyeballed" into place. There are so many pieces that I don't think it's going to matter if the stem isn't perfectly symmetrical.

You say you chalked your design onto the fabric. Is your marking tool making too wide a line for you to feel like it's accurate? What are you marking with? Could that be the problem?

We will figure this out!

I'm having a problem with the applique block. I made a copy of the block on my printer and had some trouble lining it up to tape it together. DH Mike fudged it and we thought I could still use it. I traced it onto my freezer paper and it just didn't look right so I folded it in half so I could cut it out, since one half looked good. I then ironed my freezer paper onto my fabric and chalked around it. Even though I folded it, it still didn't come out symmetrical.
We're going to try making copies again tomorrow; any advice for me? I want to get going on this ASAP!!
