Roses pieced together

1. Remember that stack of roses?
2. Then they got laid out on my bed? Lots of sewing later...about four hours worth, 2 this morning and 2 this afternoon...each piece had to be pressed with hot iron front and back before sewing and seams had to be ironed afterwards.
3. And now they are all sewn together! Wha-la! I'm really excited because it is looking like this is going to fit on my queen sized bed. There will be at least 5-6 more inches around of borders, which means I'll have an extra layer on the bed that will be very pretty, and backed, I think, with flannel for extra warmth. The batting is cotton (Warm and Natural) with is added warmth too. Might not even need to wear socks to bed. Whatdya think of that?


  1. I am absolutly in love this this quilt!!!
    I have a queen bed.. hint hint.. Grin.

  3. Very beautiful, your rose-quilt. I love roses! You are one busy women, oy;) I wish I had the patience to once do a "real" quilt, beautiful like this one and keeping warm at the same time.

  4. This quilt is just gorgeous. I drool with lust. Just think of waking up every morning and seeing roses. Much less sleeping under roses. Cool. You are very talented.

  5. Thought I should ammend my comment to say I lust for a quilt like that one! Not just that I lust. Hmm.

  6. Whooooosh! I love these roses, and how beautiful to be wrapped up in bed, with flannel backing, on a chilly evening. Mmmmm. lovely.
