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.

It's been such a long time since I posted, I am going to start today off with a post about the Zig-Zag border I am making for my Roses quilt.
There are many ways to make a Zig-Zag border, I have chosen to use half square triangles.
Here's how it works.
I cut 2 1/2 inch strips from a dark print and a light print then matched the light and dark print fabrics with right sides facing. I used a half square triangle ruler to cut out the pieces. Taking them to the sewing machine and sewing them together with a 1/4 inch seam. I like this method, it's fast and requires very little trimming.
