    Here is a tute on how to make a folded rosebud.

    Attach the rosebud to the background fabric inside of the calyx placement

    Tack the rosebud down along the bottom and inside of the folds of the bud, opening up the folds to hide the stitches

    place calyx over folded rose & stitch in place, tucking the fabric around the rosebud.

    I'll have to try this and see how it comes out. LOL. It always looks easier when you explain it! My fumble fingers...well doing them is another matter. I'll keep trying though.

    gal288,
    Thank you so much for getting the May BOM out on the QB today! You gave me a Mother's Day project to do and I love the interruption from my LAQ projects (only 2 left to go!).

    Here is my May block, I will get the border done during my Tuesday "NO NCIS" nites.

    Peg,
    The May block is really pretty. I may have to make mine in yellow too in memory of my MIL. Yellow roses were her favorite. Thanks so much for all your work.
