    Rose Scrap Quilt Top - UFO Almost Done!

    In pursuit of finishing UFOs, I pulled out a pile of scrappy rose blocks that I put together before I had a firm grip on measuring. Yeah, I know I should be ashamed of myself and probably should have tossed these blocks ... but I didn't. At least I got the vertical and horizontal seams to match up but sad to say, what's going on inside those blocks ... well you'll see.
    Happily, it is so busy that I don't think it much matters. I plan on quilting the heck out of it so hopefully the points that go this way, that way, and the other way too won't be so obvious.
    Either way, it's for me to curl up with in front of my fireplace while I enjoy my Elm Creek Quilt novels

    Sunbonnet and Grandma Bonnie, you are both so kind. I think you've inspired me to knuckle down and get the quilting done!

    The fabrics are so pretty.
    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.

    Brenda, my husband thinks he is a member of the quilt police force!
    Ronda, Only on book two. I treated myself to three of the three-in-one hardcovers. Love it. Up to Round Robin and Bonnie's stinky husband having a computer affair.

    Put in a heavy poly batting and actually, don't quilt it to death, just put on a lovely easy going pattern and you will like it a bit better. To much quilting on something like this actually shows the boo boos more. At least in my experience. That is my thought. I like these kinds of quilts because we can look back and reflect how far we have come in our skills and learning. The fabrics are so busy, no worries in my book for ya. I have a couple of these also and the kids love to use them because they seem to have the most comfort.

    Busy?? I guess so, it just reminds me of being in the middle of a beautiful rose garden. Thanks for sharing.

    Krystyna, that is lovely. I just love the roses. When I look at it it reminds me of my mom, she loved roses. Until you did the close up, I could not even see the missing points. I'd say you planned it that way. Use it and love it. I do agree that is shows how far you have come in hour quilting. I really see it maybe even double batted and tied very loosely!! I don't know why, but that is exactly what I envisioned when I first say it. A nice fluffy comforter that just cusions you will lovely roses, like you were rolling in them. Less the pickers, of course!! LOL You are an inspiration!

    Onalee, I never thought of double batting. Not only am I attempting to use up my stash of fabric, but also my stash of batting. And there is PLENTY of it. The last estate sale I went to ... 24 bags at $1 each! How could I leave them there? Impossible!

    Beautiful fabric Krystyna. Hope you get it quilted before winter sets in. It should chase away the winter blahs with all the beautiful roses in it to remind you that spring will come again.

    Real roses are never truly symmetrical so what makes you think that you quilt should be? I'm just saying...... non perfect points and all it is a beauty!

    i have to agree with the "poofier" batting idea - and maybe just knotted.....it's beautiful...made me smile just looking at it. how nice that will be on a cold winter night to snuggle under !!! no way you could not feel cheerful !!!

    Love the roses in your quilt. Who will notice the points anyway??? One thing I want to know is when do you find time to read. Your veils, the DQ swaps and also the regular quilts. Some body said it would make them think of a cottage and since you live in one by the sea it is really great.

    Well, I think it is beautiful! Like you said, the quilting will minimize the "off-joint" seams and points. Great job!!

    Pink roses are my favorites. I love all that material together. Have fun quilting it.

    Aunt Janey, books last me a long, long time. When I finally get a chance to read in the evening, 9 times out of 10 I fall asleep with the book on my face! I need to designate some down time for it!

    Here's a photo of "Somewhere by the Sea" -- my little seaside cottage -- taken quite a few years ago so the garden looks quite different -- the icky planter is gone -- and the porch has wicker furniture, shades and an old cast iron dining set from the 1920s.
    The photo looks a little odd because it's used for the background on my artisan jam brochure.
