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!

To make the red turn the corners nicely I then added strips to the bottom edge as shown:

I added a 1-1/4 x 1-1/4 square to the end of another strip to add on the other side:

And squared up the units to match the width of the pieced swags:

You are right, Kathy. I just sort of made it up as I went along. Basically I created 4 squares of 9 strips (at least 7" long x 1-1/4"), cut them diagonally as shown, shuffled them for a scrappy look and sewed the triangles together, being careful not to stretch the bias.

Margo-in the photo it looks like you didn't use the Small Flower Cornerstones, but continued the swags around the corner. Are there instructions for that somewhere?
