    I Never Promised You A Rose Garden

    Finally finished this queen size named "I Never Promised You a Rose Garden". It is a modified "Garden Maze" pattern. The original block pattern called for a 7" block in the center, but this fabric's motif was large, so I changed the dimensions to accommodate these gorgeous roses. This was my first attempt at a pantograph, which is a uniform pattern from one edge of the quilt to the other. It takes a lot longer than free motion quilting because 1) you quilt from the backside of the machine and have to look at the pattern instead of the quilt and 2) after you finish each row, you have to line up the next row so it is of equal distance to avoid large spaces between the rows and to avoid sewing over the previous row. It takes uninterrupted concentration, of which I have little! I had a couple of "oops" show up on the back, so I decorated the back with embroidered rose appliqué patches. I couldn't get the quilting illustration to load so next post will try again.

    I love this! Are those poppies on the fabric? Spring has certainly sprung at your house, there deep in the heart of Texas! Kudos!

    Stunningly beautiful and what a great job you did! The appliques on the back are a very smart idea and no one would ever know that there's a slight stitching oops underneath. Great idea.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.
