Here we go again

School and all its busyness has returned. I seem to be drowning in books to be covered and questionnaires to be filled in. In amongst it though, I have managed to fire up the sewing machine and get some borders on my 'Barefoot Roses' quilt. It is such a pleasure to be sewing again after many weeks away from the machine.
The quilt pattern is a very simple one called 'Ava Rose' by Hatched & Patched. The fabrics are mostly 'Barefoot Roses', Tanya Whelan's very first fabric line.
Tanya's newest line 'Dolce' is sorely tempting, but I'm yet to succumb! It would seem not a lot has changed in the life of Bloom - frenetic chasing about after kids, growing roses, sewing roses & salivating over new fabric collections, battling the urge to purchase - life is sweet!

  12. I've been loving this particular quilt of yours for a long time. I have those same fabrics sitting in my fabric cupboard just waiting to be made into a quilt. I LOVE this pattern. Yes, life is sweet but it is made even more sweet by reading your lovely blog, Roslyn.

    Just visiting your blog for the first time and am drooling over several things... in particular (b/c we got 30" at least of snow today where I am), your rose pics... Oh, I will be soooo happy when mine pop out this year, lol!!

  17. Don't ever stop posting your beautiful floral photos. I'm especially enjoying them today after being outside with the temps. in the low 20's and snow on the ground.

  18. First off, LOVE the new tutorial on MBS! It's awesome! Also, LOVE that Barefoot Roses quilt. I love how there's a little shoo fly/churn dash block in the corners of the big blocks and that the white really sets off the patterned fabric. Oh, and I hear you about Dolce and Nicey Jane! Have you noticed that they actually coordinate! I was super suprised to find that but when I went to order some (for my shop) I ended up picking out coordinates. I think that's so cool. Love your blog. I'll be back. Oh, and lastly, I can't wait to get Material Obsession Two (it wasn't even going to be available in the US until February of 2010, I think, or maybe that was 2009.) Sorry to ramble.
