Miss Rosie

Going Buggy is the seventh in the Miss Rosie Series.  All thirteen quilts in the Miss Rosie’s Spice Of Life Quilts book by Carrie L. Nelson were made by me and my daughter after we challenged each other to make all thirteen quilts using only our stash.  We were glad when the last stitch was made.  Miss Rosie took over our life for a while.

I enjoy sewing curved seams such as the Drunkard’s Path block.  Carrie made her curved blocks another way.  She invisible machine appliqued circles using freezer paper.  Then she cut the circles into quarters.  I didn’t enjoy this method until almost the last block.  It took me all that time to be comfortable with doing it that way although I had done invisible applique before.

The traditional name for this four part quilt is Dogwood Blossom.  Carrie changed it by alternating the colors in the four segments.miss rosie going buggy0002

All three quilts look different.

Have a great day and happy quilting.
