For my New Fabric Object Project for February I made some 12 inch Rosebud blocks. The backgrounds are all fabrics with roses and the "rosebuds" are all going to be made in solids - the colors of roses.
I have a box of rose themed fabrics and back in 2009 I printed off the Rosebud pattern from Quilter's Cache and threw it in the box to remind me of a possibility for the fabrics. I guess the time is right. I love roses and am longing for some warm weather and roses blooming in the garden. Playing in rose themed fabrics might just be the next best thing.

PROGRESS ON A NewFO
I've finished four block modules for the MOD MOD QAL going on at Block Lotto and hosted by the oh-so-creative Sophie.
The block modules are 21 inches square.
I'm making the individual blocks that make up the modules in complementary colors.
And I'm using up lots of scraps.
Last August I made some giant 24 inch crumb stars and then turned them into a 60x80 quilt top.
My March goal for A Lovely Year of Finishes is to baste, quilt and bind my crumb stars and get it donated to Quilts of Valor. I have a fun backing fabric for it all picked out.
