Because the sashing strips finish at 3" x 8" and 3" x 16", and I'm guessing that the borders are about 8", I figure it will be around 54" square.

Margo - I have a question.

Have you figured out how large your wall hanging version will be?

Just a note to anyone who isn't familiar with ROSES OF REMEMBERANCE.

It is a pattern designed by Sharon Pederson, but was not a TQS BOM. http://sharonpederson.blogspot.com/

I'm very enthusiastic about this BOM too. After doing the Roses of Remembrance BOM, I wasn't planning on doing another, but I just couldn't resist this one. Sue Nickels is my favorite teaching for machine quilting and for applique and I just love the colors. By the way, after making 13 Rose of Remembrance blocks, I've decided not to make it into a quilt. All that applique doesn't belong on my bed, what with pens and coffee, so I am now debating between three wall quilts or pillows.

I have already started the first installment. I'm about half way there with paper piecing, so easy. Looking for the next months block.

What service! I only ordered my kit on New Years Eve, and it arrived today (Jan 3rd)!

The fabrics are gorgeous. While the powers that be sort out how to get all of us enough fabric to paper piece, I'm going to concentrate on washing and ironing my fabrics.

I wonder how much longer the kits will be around. I want one but have to wait a week to order. Do you think I will be out of luck? I have never worked a BOM before. A little worried that I am too late and it is only the 3rd!!!!! :P

Barbara, we need to think of this as a mystery BOM! We have no idea what fabric goes where!

I keep hearing the words from this old Mickey Mouse show:
