Rose Patch

June 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!
