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 too just started the 2012 BOM and wanted to start the 2011 also but not sure about the colors so I have been procrastinating. Afraid I won't have enough of same colors in my stash to complete(Just a newbie to quilting so not a lot of stash and not wanting to spend too much which I am not sure, is in a quilters vocabulary when it comes to purchasing fabric that you sooo fall in love with LOL!!)
So where are you now ,Barb? have you started the first block? I just started cutting mine out.

You know, I have had some instances where I was unable to download some of the months instructions. Is there anyway we can get the instructions for the months I am missing?

I just started the quilt in January. I have the center block finished. I am in the middle of doing four quilts and work full time so I don't know if I can keep up but I'm going to try. I changed the colors after I bought all the fabrics. Last summer we went on a painting frenzy in our house so the other colors do not match. I am trying to work from my stash. When I washed the applique to remove the starch and markings, I noticed that I need to do a little repairing. I took a picture of the block and noticed one of my berries was a giant compared to the others so I'm going t redo that one. I've never posted to this site before. I'd love to see pictures of your works in progress.

Yup! I'm only on month 3 of the 2011 BOM, so you'll probably catch up to me soon! Doing two could be exciting, but I think we need to not have any deadlines! Just enjoy the journey, however far we get each month! I love them both!

Hi, I am just going to start doing the 2011 BOM along with the 2012 Bom, by the sound of things you'd better wish me luck, things didn't turn out for me to be able to start the 2011 BOM last year so thought I would take up the challenge and do the two of them this year, I have not done turned edge applique before ( only raw edge blanket stitch ) nor paper piecing so this is really going to be a challenge, but I'm up for it. I was wondering if anyone else is going to do the 2011 BOM this year as I did see that the Kits did sell out toward the end of the year. I will read through the forum as I go to gleen information :D :D
