Rose Patch

6.27.2012

After tearing the stitches out, adding another border and beginning the quilting again, the nine patch is now finished.

I'm naming her Rose Patch. 


Fabrics used: Rose Parade by Moda and scraps. 
Binding: Aqua Kona cotton 
Measures: 51" x 52"






Yes, I use cereal box cardboard and make templates to trace for my quilting. It's cheap and it works. I added the masking tape because the corners got smooshy. I save all my templates to reuse for future projects.  


Quilt pattern? I made it up as I went along. =) 

Have a great Wednesday!

  9. Gorgeous! My daughters would love this quilt. It's feminine without being too "girlie". I can't get over how much you accomplish in your craft as well as writing a wonderful blog. Maybe you could write a blog post showing what a typical day is for you as well as tips for making time to sew or quilt. I certainly would be interested!
