I LOVE Roses....especially the old fashioned kind that have such a wonderful fragrance and are winter hardy in these parts...the kind of roses the deer and rabbits like to eat down to the ground...the kind that stick to your fingers, hair, clothes...yes, I LOVE the roses in my garden.
This is one of the ways I chose to use some of the rose fabrics I've been
hoarding collecting for years. This is a 12 inch block called Rosebud. With these 12 blocks I think that brings my total to 42. I think I want 56 blocks for a 7 x 8 layout...a nice big quilt. I have used rose themed fabrics for the background and made the rosebud part of the block out of solids in a variety of colors of roses.
But now that I'm getting close to the number of blocks I think I need I'm not really liking how they all look together - colors and values are all over the place. Maybe I need a garden path...or an alternate block... or some birds...Hmmm...maybe I'll just continue on and make the other fourteen blocks (fabrics are selected and partially cut) and then think about it. Maybe I'll end up with two big quilts. Maybe I'll...who knows?...combine it with the other rose themed fabric UFO that's really old?
At any rate...It's Monday and I'm kind of moving this UFO forward so that means I should probably link up to Moving it Forward Monday at Em's Scrapbag.
