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 removed the paper as soon as I trimmed the blocks to the correct size, and assembled them just like any regular blocks. In fact, I didn't pay any extra attention to the diagonal piecing...just lined up corners and the raw edges, and I thought they went together really easily!

I'm sewing my lattice border tonight and have squared off many of them. Are most of you leaving the paper on to match up when sewing them together or did you remove the paper first?

I'm nervous... :)

I'm so glad to hear how many of you are liking the lattice border! I had never done one like this before, but I love it, too, and plan to use it again.

Now that we know how to make our floaters work for us (from last year's BOM) we can use this sweet little border to fit whatever quilt we want to put it on!

Sue rocks!!

Oh, how funny! Me, too! I could just picture all of those slats (?) in the lattice, in all of the colors that I am using in my center block. I may have to tone down a couple of other areas though, or it could be REALLY colorful!!!

I finally did something right.....all of my blocks, after squaring them up, were the exact, correct size. I was so thrilled with myself. :shock: I have one side sewn together, three more to go. I love the way it is turning out. I did this quilt just because of that lattice border....I love it.

If you missed it on the Daily Blog, there is now a tutorial available in case you are having difficulty printing your foundation papers. Neither Sue nor I had anything to do with this...the typos aren't ours on this one! :roll:

My laser printer shrinks my documents. So I always use an inkjet printer if I need an exact size.

Yes the PDF is certainly correct, I had no issue at all printing out the foundations at an exact 2.5" square.

Printing from the .pdf, the blocks come out at barely over 2 1/4"unfinished size. I use a lot of .pdf files and have come to trust them.

I foolishly trusted this .pdf and cut out 120 at the printed size and made up 9 finished squares only to discover the finished blocks were 3/8" too small. Now I'm making up new squares at 2 1/2" finished size WITHOUT USING THE PAPER FOUNDATIONS AT ALL. It's easier just to sew the 4" strip between the two triangles, trim to 2 1/2"and sew them together into blocks. Great frustration to waste the nine finished blocks, but that seems to be the best solution at this point. :(

Carolyn, we are sure that the PDF is correct. It is individual printers that are causing the sizes to be incorrect. :(

We need to make the directions more clear about checking the size of the foundations.

Margo,
Should a one-inch test square be added to the foundation paper pattern sheet? It seems like it might have prevented some problems that are happening this month. Or perhaps as Sue edits the pattern, she could add a statement that prints out ON THE PATTERN PAGE that the patterns should measure exactly 2 1/2 inches when printed. Just a thought...

Sue and I have been weighing options to make the measurements more obvious. Thanks for your suggestion.

Hi, Just to say mine printed out exactly 2 1/2 inches and I have made up one side of the lattice and all went very well and fitted great, some times maybe the printers can be out by just a bit, I find a difference with the one at work and the one at home like this.

Also diferent measuring tapes can be under or over, I went through all of mine a few years ago and found some different, I used a ruler to work out which ones correct and threw the others away so check your tapes, just a suggestion.

Tip: what I did was a trial run when sewingthe blocks together by using a large stitch to make sure if to use a 1/4 inch or less or more, I used a 1/4 inch in the end.
