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

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

    fold in other side, overlapping a bit

    close to lower edge, take a couple of tacking stitches.

    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.

    cut the border block background 6-1/2" square, we will trim it to the correct size when we are ready to assemble top.

    I got it to work on the home computer Peg. It could have been something with my work computer. Silly thing probably thought I should have been working. :)

    Thanks for double checking it.

    I am unable to download the EQ version. The others downloaded just fine. Any suggestions on what to do?

    I just finished a block from Elly Seikewinz's (bad spelling, huh?) book. Wish I had had this tutorial before making the rosebuds. Yours look really great! And have personality. The directions in Elly's book were lacking.

    I was wondering the same thing. I thought they probably should be the same color as the 4 small inner corner blocks we just finished last month.
