The beautiful "Rosie's Rose" paper pieced quilt block pattern looks complicated, but is really quite easy to sew. This quilt pattern contains clearly annotated paper piecing pattern sections & how-tos for sewing the design and its mirror image. The pattern pieces as given make a 6" (15.24 cm) block. Use the convenient percentages table (included) to resize the block to a range of popular sizes.
Using subtle variations of the same color family, such as soft yellows or pinks, will result in a more natural looking rose. Choosing vivid, more contrasting tones will give your rose a more modern, graphic appeal. No matter what colors you select, though, you'll love watching your rose "bloom" as you sew the fabric pieces from the center outward.
A coloring page is also provided, for you to experiment with your own color schemes and variations before cutting into fabric.
Basic paper piecing instructions are NOT included. For links to my favorite on-line paper piecing tutorials, please visit piecebynumber.com/links.htm Email support for questions with sewing the block pattern is happily provided - reach me via http://piecebynumber.com/contact.htm
