SHABBY ROSES - the label, and a new design!!,

The day has come.
The final day to share my very first Shabby Roses quilt block - this time the quilt label.
When you've sewn the label on a quilt it's a project completed, and then it's time to stand back and admire the work of your hands, the beauty of a created piece.
Even though the designs are mine, the finished appearance is all yours. Give yourselves a big {{hug}} from me.
You chose the fabrics, the threads. You made choices that took my work and gave it special magic using your own imagination and style! Well done!! I am so humbled by the beautiful photos coming through to me of finished quilts - you are so talented, so incredibly kind to have made my quilt, so generous in your words of encouragement to me along the journey.
~ thank you ~

**The Shabby Roses Quilt label will not be available as a free download after December 31st, 2009. It will be available as part of the purchase set of blocks 10, 11 & 12 in my Etsy Store.

If you haven't downloaded the assembly instructions to complete your quilt, you can download the file HERE.


I had fabrics left over after I finished my Shabby Roses Quilt, so I decided it would make good sense to add the Shabby Roses Bolster Cushion to the collection!

The cushion is 20 inches long, and 27 inches in circumference.
This was my gift to Blossom as she has been such a help in the Shabby Roses journey, and she's been patiently waiting for a bolster cushion for two years! She says it was 'well worth the wait!'

But I really loved the new design, HOPE, so using different, but just as beautiful fabrics, I made the HOPE wallhanging and hung it with an organza ribbon. There is a little hanging sleeve hidden behind where I could thread the ribbon through.

The wallhanging is 10 1/2 inches X 7 1/4 inches, and is bound with fabric that reminded me of ripe raspberries, my favourite fruit.

The HOPE pattern set - for both the bolster cushion & the wallhanging - are available to purchase HERE through my Etsy store! for $8.95 USD.

If you would like to purchase the HOPE set in Australian currency, you can do so at my shop blog HERE.

Next year I have another gorgeous BOM for you!!
This time it will be in blues...and with some more of my Shabby Roses!

Oh, I am so pleased with the label and also the hope projects.. My 15 yo granddaughters name is Hope. Still working on my quilt and another bom with a friend. Thanks for all your wonderful ideas and you certainly have made a happy place in my heart. I feel that if we lived close, we could be good friends,so we will have to do it across the miles.
Hugs, Maggey

Well done! I can't believe we're almost at the end of the quilt! I love your bolster cushion. How are you and your family coping with the heat? It's 37 for the fourth day in a row here. and the humidity is at 70% or more! Lucky for swimming pools and air conditiong!
I was at my friends house on Sunday, she doesn't have air con and all her incubaters kept beeping. Um, her lizard egg incubaters, that is.
And we had to go around spraying all the lizards with water, and feeding them lettuce to keep their fluids up. I hate to think how the wild ones are coping. Did you see my new baby from a few posts back? Pepsi is sitting next to the computer right now watching me type! lol
Have you being seeing all the mangoes on the trees? Pretty soon, they'll be ready to pick and wrap in newspaper to ripen! Yum Yummy Yum!
Anysway, let you keep reading your other comments!

Hi Jenny.
I have loved downloading the gifts from you each month. I wishyou and yours a Blessed Christmas and look forward to sharing the new year with you. And a new project to boot.

Cattinka said...

Thank you for the lable, I have to stitch it to complete my quilt, without it something important would be missing.

Amanda said...

Jenny, thank you so much for your generosity in sharing these patterns with us. I haven't got further than making cushions from the first two blocks, but I've saved them all up and hope to get further next year.

Rae Ann said...

Wonderful idea!
Thank you!

SewLindaAnn said...

thanks for the pictures. I love seeing the different landscape and hearing about the wildlife you have there is AU. That pod is like nothing I've ever seen before, fascinating to a gardener like myself.

KaHolly said...

Just perfect. Thank you, Jenny, for a wonderful BOM. I've thoroughly enjoyed working each block. I incorporated a few delicate beads into the embroidery, much to my delight. This is my first embroidery project and I'm hooked! Can't wait to return to my island retreat to complete my quilt.
