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!

Here is my block with my mitered border added. It is the very first mitered border that I have ever put on a quilt block. Yippy!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D :) :P I spent several hours today sewing the blocks for the lattice border. I have them all finished now....so I will start putting them together tomorrow and square them up.

Place the lattice however YOU want it!! On Sue's version, and both of mine they are just randomly placed until they looked pleasing.

If you want to do a color thing with them, you might try something like I did with the flying geese units in the 2009 BOM Stars for a New Day.

Wow Margo! Your Stars for a New Day looks breath taking! I almost fell down to the floor :lol: , it looks so beautiful. (I was not star member when this BOM was going on, if I had, I would have surely participated.)
Maybe I play with my lattice blocks when I finish them and see how it looks best. I do like graduated look, flowing colours.

It works best if you print out the directions and follow them one step at a time!

Peg,

Margo has given us step by step instructions even us techno challenged can follow. Go to the forums menu and go down the list of forums until you get to "Forum Questions & Suggestions". The very first topic is how to add your signature.

I have a question: On lattice border, when I sew paper-pieced blocks together, should I place them in certain colour order or just randomly? I will use different fabrics than original patterns though.

I made starch last night. I used the boiling of water and adding cornstarch to that. I will try it today. Thank you for the help!
