Rose Quilt

I am starting on my new project.  I fell in love with these fabrics....


I decided to make a rose themed quilt based on the colors from the rose fabric.  I love the different shades of green and pink.



I also love roses!  This is one of my favorites in my flower bed.  It is called Valentine and it is an antique rose.  It is very tough and can withstand the crazy heat we have in the summer.  It just keeps on blooming through the heat.


Here are some of the fabrics I am going to include in the quilt... 
from left to right...
Crazy for Dots and Stripes Dottie Green/White
Sugar Hill Falling Roses White/Pink by Tanya Whelan for Free Spirit
Skipping Square Dots (Snowflakes) in Vanilla Ice Cream from Sherbet pips by Aneela Hoey for Moda
Pearl Bracelet in Yellow from Outfoxed by Lizzy House for Andover Fabrics
Green and white small print is unknown
Remix Zig Zag Pink/Lime by Ann Kelle for Robert Kaufman
Leaf Stripe in Pink from Outfoxed by Lizzy House for Andover Fabrics
Illusion Diamond Pink from 1001 Peeps by Lizzy House for Andover Fabrics
Dumb Dot Blush by Michael Miller


I love all the Remix Zig Zag fabrics.  There are many different colors available and they add so much character to your quilt.  I can't get enough of fabric with geometric designs!  The Outfoxed collection also has some of my favorites.


Ok, now I am sure you are asking "Wait, what happened to the I Spy Quilt?  Where did that go?"  I haven't forgotten it.  

All of the half square triangles are put together.  As I started cutting fabric for the border I realized that I don't have enough.  So it has been ordered and I am patiently (ok, not so patiently) waiting for it.  Once it arrives, I will get back to work on it!

Have a great weekend!
