Roses for Me

Project Description

What are you most proud of? Completing this quilt and knowing that it has not fallen apart in the washing machine!!!!! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Be mindful of which way your seams go. I had top quilting problems with some seams changing its position. Also ensure your center panel is cut square. This one is not!!!!!

dottyeb asked:
Absolutely lovely. The colors are just beautiful. I paint roses on porcelain, and love the subtle shadings in these beautiful flowers. Your quilt brings out those color subtleties in a magnificent way!
Julieannabell answered:
dottyeb, I must apologise for not responding to your comments. My pc died and have only just got back on to the internet. Thank you so much for your lovely comments. This was my first large project and it took a long time to gather all those fabrics. It did turn out lovely I am giving it to my stepmother. Thanks Julieannabell.
Pyper asked:
Your quilt may be just the jumpstart I need to begin learning quilting. It's truly lovely, and the time and effort it must have taken to find exactly the right prints for this project are obvious in its beauty.
Julieannabell answered:
Thank you Pyper for your lovely comments. Do start quilting it is a truly satisfying craft. Not only that you learn to make many beautiful things as well. This quilt actually took me a year to collect and make it. Being on a pension and strict budget does slow things down considerably but it was truly rewarding to see it finished. Someone has suggested I enter it a quilt show to which I might do! Thanks again Julie.
