    I saw this quilt at a local quilt show, and was impressed by the pattern. Your quilt is just lovely!

    I think its easier to get the freezer paper off if you quilt AROUND it instead of THROUGH it. Use a different FP template for each line. You can use each piece several times before it loses it's ability to stick.

    Thank you for your suggestion. I will try that.

    No, I did free motion quilting. I am just learning how to FMQ. I really enjoy it. But as others have said, Practice Practice Practice. . So that is what I'm doing.

    I made three of this pattern. One for each of my granddaughters. They picked out the fabrics and they helped cut out the roses. I used plastic templates....made it real easy. They know this is "my quilt"!

    Yup quilting is a real learning curve. You must be happy with your results. It looks great.

    It's beautiful....I haven't seen this pattern before and I'm really taken with it. Thanks for sharing your troublespots with us....it may save those that try it from getting frustrated with the paper removal. I love the fabrics you've used and your photo's are pretty good. The last ones I took were a joke...brilliant shots of my feet, not the quilt

    Yours is great. I have my top done it has similar colors have not quilted it yet. I am using parchment paper (tracing) on one I'm quilting now it comes off pretty good.

    That is beautiful! I just got the pattern. Next time try Golden Threads paper to sew over and shorten your stitch length. It's easy to pull off. Nice job on the quilting!

    Just curious. What size are the finished blocks on this quilt and how large was your finished quilt?

    Your roses turned out beautiful. I made one of these too and it was fun.
