A Rose is a Rose is a Rose

I have another quilt to share that is now in its almost finished state. Betty Jane has fussy cut the Roses and in person they look dimensional. The print is that well articulated.

Her quilting for this piece follows the design line of the flowers and background leaves. Lots of patience required here quilters. A machine quilter, Betty Jane has a great eye for design. She is talented and prolific in her work and always comes up with something extraordinary. Again, the TRQ theme for 2016 is Flowers. Looks like the Ladies are very timely with their choices!

Do you know Cristy Fincher? Of Purple Daisies Blog?  This blog is FULL of great ideas and inspiration. This is the link that takes you to her tutorial for paperless paper piecing. I know, sounds contradictory and it is very, very detailed. If you are up for a new technique and a way to advance skills this one will thrill you.
