    Roses For Dale

    This is for a dear friend who does not enjoy the best of health.

    I searched for a pattern for large prints and found one called "Leading Ladies'. I quilted a straight stitch half an inch apart on the large red blocks, stitched in the ditch the rest and hand quilted the small roses to make them "pop". Hope she likes it.

    She likes roses, hence the fabric.

    What a beautiful 2 color quilt! Perfect for that fabric. You're a very special friend. She'll love it.
