First 2 Blocks of Roseville
I almost hate to post these blocks on top of these fabulous pictures of Kim and the group and these amazing quilts. Looks like a wonderful time. We all wish we could have been there!
I started the Roseville a few monts ago with the large bottom panel... now I've finished these 2 blocks. I do like the way they turned out - I changed up the panel with the tall vase a bit. I had this fabric with these beautiful leaves so I decided to use those on this block instead of what the pattern called for. Also, I kept the flower petals all the same fabric. The other block with the cactus-like things and all those little shapes was fun, but it took quite a while to make all those little flower shapes. I made them out of wool because I liked the solid look (plus... I loved not having to turn under the edges).
I'd love to hear your comments. I wish I could work on this quilt everyday! It is so hard to leave it to go work and attend to all of life's so many distractions...
