Bed of Roses – Block 11

Did you enjoy stitching last month’s 2 blocks?  I hope so because this month’s blocks are the exact same 2 blocks!  That means you will be making a total of 4 Rose Tree Blocks.

So, if you have been stitching along with me, here are the blocks you will have completed (plus the 2 from this month).  Block 11 is available on my website Simple Bird Studio.  I still have a few of the side setting triangles to complete, but they are prepped and ready to stitch.

Three more sleeps and we are off to the International Quilt Festival, which is being held in Chicago. I am so excited to be going!  Colleen (from Elite Quilting) and I are driving to Chicago (about a 8 or 9 hour trip), so I am hoping to come back with lots of goodies and (more importantly) lots of inspiration.   Perhaps I will take those side triangles with me just in case I need something to stitch:)  As soon as I get back from Chicago, I am going to start sewing the blocks together.  I can’t wait to get this quilt finished!

I have picked the pattern for the next BOM (to start in June) and I am in the process of choosing the fabrics.  I think it is going to be another winner!

My Hazel is coming along quite nicely.  I can’t tell you how  relieved I was when I added the outer rings and they actually fit.  And the points ended up exactly where they are supposed to be.  Life is good!
