    This is a very cool quilt. Great quilt for using scraps. I use tissue paper for my quilting designs. My MIL was a nurse at a Dr's office where they used the rolls of tissue paper on the examining table. She got cases of it for me because it had advertisements on it that the Dr. didn't like. Works like a charm.

    Yes, it's called "French Roses" by Heather French.

    I made this same quilt and love mine as well. It was so easy but your quilting makes it. I hand quilted mine. And quilted random leaves on vine on the borders. Your colors are much like mine. Love this quilt.

    Really pretty quilt and such a pretty quilting motif in the border. I always learn something new with every project. I'm starting to write these things down wen I journal about the quilt. It's interesting to remember the first time I tried a new technique or learned something new about piecing or quilting. Thanks for sharing your lovely quilt.

    Love the quilt, this past weekend DH and I were on Texas coast..found a quilt shop..in the shop was a quilt that was very similar to this one, except instead of the flowers, they had sewn onto a muslin piece all sizes and shapes of 1930 material and left the edges to fray. The pieces ranged from 2x2 to 3x4..a great way to use your scrapes with little trouble...and it looked to be a fast making quilt.
    Wished I would have taken a picture...but...

    This is lovely! Next time, trace your quilting pattern onto Golden Threads Quilting Paper - it's lighter and will tear out without messing up your stitching.
