Remember my first Shabby Roses quilt? I auctioned it early this year to raise funds for the Queensland Flood Appeal, and lovely Pam all the way over in the USA was the winner with a top bid of $500.
As I carefully packed the quilt to post to Pam I was already missing it, so it didn't take long for me to begin choosing fabrics for a second version! Unfortunately, time is a commodity I don't have as much of as I'd like, so the remake is a slow process, BUT, I am getting the blocks done little by little.
Three are completed so far, with only nine more to follow...
The fabric in the applique is Tilda, so the quilt this time will feature a lot of blue and not so much pink.
There have been some very lovely ladies email with photos this week of their own version of "Shabby Roses", so please have a look...
Elfriede has used blocks from "Shabby Roses", and also blocks from my 2nd Shabby Rose quilt, "Bouquet"!
She has designed her own quilt layout for the blocks, and I love it! Elfriede, this is beautiful!
Lynette has also made "Shabby Roses" her own by adding in some of my "Bouquet" blocks! Another gorgeous quilt. :-)
You can still purchase the patterns for "Shabby Roses" and "Bouquet" in my Etsy Shop, and if you purchase either pattern before Sunday night I will also send you the pattern for my third Shabby Roses quilt, "A Christmas Story" for free!
Here are more lovely stitcheries from talented stitchers!
Fee's 12yo daughter Amy has her mother's talent for sure. Amy stitched my "Ellie" design into a cushion! Isn't it beautiful? Well done, Amy!
Another Ellie has made her debut as well. Catherine from Texas sent me her photo, and again, I am lovin' Ellie!
Thank you for sharing, ladies. Each of you blessed my socks off!
Now I must go watch tonight's episode of MasterChef Australia...who will be going home??
