wip


Slowly piecing all the patches... I have made a few alternations to the quilt to make it come more together:

* adding more large scale flowers to the layout, red Russian Rose
* fussy cutting the individual blooms from two color ways of Big Bloom for "portraits" in the 3" squares
* rearranging / balancing the light and dark in a circular movement

I will name this "Dans på roser", and I can't think of a good translation for this phrase in english. Maybe something like "Roses are red ... "

I am taking my time piecing it together, trying to be very accurate on seam allowance. I want it to stay flat!

that is awsome! I'm afraid of making this kind of quilt. It's so intimidating and so many things could go wrong.
