A ROSE BY ANY OTHER NAME...

This is Colleen’s latest quilt.  I couldn’t wait to show it to you.  She will be teaching a class on how to make this Rose of Sharon quilt.  The pattern is by Sharon Pederson from That Patchwork Place.

Below are close-up shots of the individual blocks.


I fell in love with this quilt the moment I saw it.  I love Colleen’s choice of batik fabrics.  She used the raw edge method of appliqué and machine stitched the edges.  It is a stunning quilt.  Watch for upcoming class dates in the next Attic Window Quilt Shop Newsletter, due out soon.

Quilt Cook Keep has a nice tutorial.  This Feeling Fallish Mug Rug is perfect for this time of year, and so easy to make!
Stay calm! Stay kind! Stay Positive!

Oh. My. Goodness. That is so gorgeous. I have Sharon's book, but haven't started this quilt yet. Oh it's so beautiful! These are lovely, lovely fabrics. Did she use the fabrics that are out there for the pattern?
