Rose Top is Done

The rose top is finished, not quilted . . not even loaded on the longarm but that will happen very soon.  The border is a simple four patch made up of the fabrics used in the blocks.  The quilt will be something like 77″ x 96″.  The goal for today is to get it quilted.  I’d like to get the binding done but I have a couple of appointments that will take a few hours out of my day.  Always too much going on!


My next project is to finish this top.  Seems as though I’m missing a block.  Maybe it’s with the iPod! 🙂


I’m not going to spend much time looking for that missing block.  If I don’t find it, I’ll go on to something else.  There are plenty of UFO’s around here . . that’s for sure.

    The rose quilt turned out so pretty. Love how all the colors play so well together.

    That iPod has lots of playmates doesn’t it?

    Rose quilt is gorgeous. I think the kitty took the missing block so he’d have a blankie.

    I love the rose top. When you said you were going to sash it I assumed with colored fabric. It is gorgeous with the white sashing!

    Love the design of this quilt ! Will it become a pattern that you have for sale? I can see it in scrappy fabrics. Dreaming of a new project…..

    Ooooh, I like that quilt! And the star quilt, even as blocks and sashing units, looks even better made up than it did as an EQ illustration — and it looked plenty good that way! I really like both things you’re showing in this post. But then, you seldom make something that I don’t like 😉

    Oh Judy I love the rose quilt. I am finishing one with tulips only I don’t have the extra block. In fact I like both versions you showed. Great work

    Hi Judy. Your rose quilt is as bright and cheery as a flower garden alive with a beautiful array of colors after a springtime shower! Just gorgeous! Thanks for sharing!
