    Has anyone tried Ricky Tims Stable Stuff Poly? I bought some but haven't tried it yet. It can be used inside of your applique pieces and then when it gets wet (washed) it becomes a stuffing. It can also be used in the printer. I think I want to try it for the stuffed roses.

    Sounds interesting, be sure to post when you try it so we can see the results. It might work with the stuffed rose nicely.

    Yes, that's why I posted this block first. You have 11 more months to work on finishing all 4, some of the blocks that are coming in the future will not take a whole month to do, so you can keep the extra blocks from the corner to fill in.

    Idle hands are not good!

    There are 4 blocks,, plus sashing across top & bottom, with 1 block on each side with sashing.

    Shouldn't the center block be equal in size to 2 of the border blocks? or at least smaller , since there is a sashing strip between them ?

    yes, but because everyone has liked the ruched rose, I am adding another swag border around the center block, which has changed the calculations

    you're very astute, picked up on the change, maybe next month you can be my proofreader?

    updated photo with new swag ruched border.

    Does the change in the center block change the size? I am getting just a little confussed. I made my center block the 17 1/2 " as directed so now what?

    Keep going, center block did not change,, when I added the swag I changed the outer. Border which we did not do yet. I won' t changed anything you have completed.

    You will have enough I changed the width of the outer border which will accommmodate the change in adding the swag.

    I am already planning on adding some pieced blocks between the center blocks and the outside border, and then a second border to make the quilt larger.

    I have completed the corner blocks. I am posting them here. But they are all raw edge applique, nothing done by hand, so I am not that quick! I also did not do the funky roses.

    Beautiful! I'm a new quilter and have never used batik fabrics but they are lovely. I just might have to order some.

    LastGrandma: Did you use all batik fabric for your blocks, including the background? Do you know a reasonable place online to buy batik fabrics? Your work is beautiful!

    Be sure to wash those batiks a couple of times. Sometimes they still bleed after that.

    they are beautiful, love the colors, great job

    They funky roses are just an option to learn a new technique..
    please. Feel free to do your block & quilt any way you choose.

    I just like. To show different techniques as a. Teaching method... when quilters. Pay for. A. Class I want. Them to get their monies worth.
