What are you most proud of? I love this whole quilt. It is deceptively easy. I love how professional it looked. I love the frayed flower edges too.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Have fun with this one. It is not a "perfect" quilt. You get a bit more creative wiggle room on it.

Just finished piecing my own French Flowers in florals. It was a fun project! Love yours in the reds.

Oh fun! What colors are you using? I have an Aggie family and am thinking of making a maroon and white one.

Very striking looking quilt. I just love to see the colors that other people use. I have this pattern and would have chosen pastels until I saw yours, now I've changed my mind. Thanks for sharing and giving all of us inspiration plus permission to think outside the box!

If you google images for French Roses quilt there is a lot of inspiration out there. The lady I bought the pattern from wrote me a note she made one out of men's shirts that looked really nice.

I love this! I made one out of the pale pastels and it is lovely, but I'm a brights girl and next time I will go with my heart! Thanks for sharing

I bet yours is beautiful!

It's a beautiful quilt! I love the look of the big straight edge appliqud roses. Well, really, I love the look of the whole quilt. What size are the blocks (assuming they are blocks), and what size is your quilt? Is the top flannel or did you use flannel as the batting? Inquiring minds and all that.

Thanks for the compliment! The final size is 60x60. I believe the blocks are 8", each one has the flower on it. The top white part is a thrifted cotton sheet and the back is flannel. I used warm and natural batting.
