Simply Red Quilt Pattern BOM Rosette Block
Rosette is block Ten of the Simply Red Quilt Pattern BOM.
The Rosette block uses four red fabrics and one background fabric. A simple flower borderd by half moon shapes.
I love making the flowers as a whole unit before stitching them to the background. My Simply Red Applique blocks are stitched with a turned edge invisiblely by machine, you can find out more about how I do my applique here.
I would love you to share your blocks.... you can post them to the Pine Valley Quilts Facebook Group.
