Sweet, Sweet Roses and Free Pattern
|Sweet, Sweet Roses Quilt - 55" x 55"|
He has a wonderful, patient assistant named Laurie who actually puts up with him (he's really a good guy, just sometimes asks for things the last minute). When he said he was probably going to buy her (another) Starbuck's gift card for Christmas, I offered the above quilt. The only image I have is the digital image, but the real quilt is awesome. (I wish I had taken a picture of it. Maybe Laurie can do that for me.)
I made it for Blank Quilting a few years ago and it was sitting quietly on the closet shelf, probably crying to herself, wanting badly to go to a loving home. I also patterned it for Blank and you can get the pattern by clicking on the link below.
I taught this quilt as a workshop several times and I still have a little bit of the fabric left in both the blue and pink colorways. I will use it to make something girlie for my soon-to-be-born granddaughter (mid January). Finally a girl! But, I sure do love those little boys (3 and 1) who belong to my middle daughter.
The two blocks used are the Kansas Beauty Block and the Four Knaves Block.
Anyway, download the Sweet, Sweet Roses Pattern and enjoy!
