Thank you Jill, Doreen and Mary. I've completed month four and posted a photo and am looking forward to beginning the baskets in a couple of weeks. This project has taught me so much already!!

Terry, your quilt is very pretty, love your color selection. It's going to be a beautiful quilt. It's a lot of work but well worth it!

Well done Terry, it looks great. I was trying to think of what came next? I think it's those little 4-patch on point thingys. I went badly wrong with those as my 1/4" seam guide wasn't! So I ended up out by 3 whole inches! You probably know this already but check your 1/4" is really that before you begin. There was also something in the instructions that was a little confusing at this point but I can't remember what it was. (That's a great help isn't it :roll: ) Anyway, good luck with the next step. :D

Rita is right, next border is the most challenging in this quilt. Check the size of the four patches before sewing them into the border. Mine is hanging on the design wall mounted with this border and the rest of the quilt impatiently waiting in a box. I have had so much else to do, but I really don't like when I can't finish my project, so you bet I will come to it - hopefully soon.

Terry -

That's so beautiful! You are now officially ahead of me on this one. I'm still in the middle of appliquing the swags, but don't know when I'll get back to this one.

I'm slowly working on this project. I did finish the swags. I was so worried about getting all the pieces to fit; but it did and I love it!!!

It has been very slow going (I only sew in the evenings), but I finally have all four borders of swags, sewn down. I will now start with my vines, flowers and hearts. I can't tell you how much I am enjoying this applique. I have changed my applique a bit, taking out a few things, and adding something different....but basically, I am following Sue's pattern.

Margie, I appreciate your suggestion! Thanks.... :D

Now I have a request. Not just for you, but for anyone posting about the Ruffled Roses BOM. In an effort to keep all the information for each month together in one place, please don't start a "NEW TOPIC", but just put your question and/or suggestions in the topic that I've already started for each pertinent month. That will make it much easier for someone looking for any information about the BOM to locate it, especially if they come to the party late!! :wink:

THANKS!
