    My French Rose Quilt

    This is the first time for this type of quilt. It was easier than I expected. Had a fun time with the quilting. I also learned a very good lesson with this quilt. I used freezer paper for the quilting design. I stitched over the freezer paper design, but when it came time to remove it, I was pulling stitches out. So I then decided to wash it and hope it came off. Wrong, but at least the paper became soft and easier to take off. I will never use freezer paper again. A hard lesson to learn. I'm just glad it wasn't on a larger quilt. This quilt is 60 x 60.

    Pretty...I learn something new with each quilt, and I try to do a different pattern every project. Nice job.

    The quilt looks great. I made one a few years ago and it was a fun, easy quilt to make.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    I'm so glad you posted this photo - a long while back I saw this pattern and made a mental note that I wanted to make one just like it. Should have made a written note! Love your color combinations and your quilting.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    I love this! It's very old fashioned looking, and pretty! Is there a pattern?

    Yes that is a fun looking quilt. It seems like we learn a new lesson with every project. As long as we are still learning all is well with the world.

    A friend of mine admired this quilt in a shop, and I bought the pattern for it to make one for her, even though it's not my thing. I've dreaded making it, so good to know that it wasn't as much hassle as you thought it would be.

    That is such an unusual pattern I haven't seen anything like that before it's lovely.
    Everyday is a good day for Quilting!

    Absolutely love this. When I walked into our local quilt shop for the very first time this quilt was on display. I fell in love with it and hoped that someday I'd have to skills to make it. Haven't thought about it lately, but I do believe that "someday" has arrived and I can handle this quilt. Thanks for the reminder of my first love.
    So many quilts, so little time.

    !!!BEAUTIFUL QUILT!!!!

    have you tried using "Glad Press and Seal"???? the stuff sticks WONDERFULLY to fabric, and peels off easily when finished AND it is clear! so you can see what your doin!

    Love your quilt. I made a bed runner (my avatar picture) with this pattern and it is my very favourite quilt ever. Didn't have the pattern so I just cut out some "blobs" and went from there. It really is a very fun pattern to do.
