New Pattern! Pioneer Rose

Here it is!  My very newest quilt pattern, Pioneer Rose.  

This quilt was sewn with the new Freedom 2 fabric line by Island Batik.  This should be in your local quilt shops now.  It's so beautiful.  Go out and get some today.

The Pioneer Rose quilt is made up of two blocks, this fusible applique rose block, 

and this curved crossing block.  The curves are fusible applique too, so no curved seams in this quilt.

The Pioneer Rose quilt is a beautiful heirloom style project featuring a rich patriotic color scheme.

It even looks pretty folded up!

I used this amazing Freedom 2 fabric for the back of the quilt.  It's my favorite in the collection.

I bound the edges with the same blue and white star fabric as the outer border.  

I quilted an echo and small pebbles in the background of the rose blocks, and did an allover loopy meander over the rest of the quilt.

It looks inviting on my front porch. 
This is my favorite spot do do hand sewing.

  1. The detail in your design is so involved and graceful. I love the bold geometric designs and the soft gray curves.

  2. This is so pretty! It caught my eye in the catalog, too, I absolutely love it. It's so nice to see a red, white, and blue quilt that is truly pretty, and this one certainly is!
