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!

Margie, thanks for the great tip! It always gratifying to be able to save time and still have a quality product.

Well, no, because all done. Perhaps if you think of it in terms of just one printout on S/S. Take a spare sheet, fan fold it in three and you'll see that that folded piece can sit comfortably behind the swag outline, with space to spare. In that space I just clicked here and there with the stapler, then just cut around one half of the two swag set, then the remaining swag, which was still held firm by the staples. So you've cut through four sheets of S/S at the one time.

In case it's useful to anyone else, I printed out four copies of the swag sheet on Stable Stuff. Then I took a four new sheets of S/S, folded each one in three, and stapled each one around but underneath the printed swag on one of the four copies. Was then able to cut out the four sets of four. Did this for each, meaning used eight sheets of S/S rather than sixteen, only printed four and in effect only had to cut out four.
