Melissa and Miss Rosie

IMG_1426Melissa is finished.  It is a good feeling to finish a project.  I have so many long term projects that never seem to be completed. Most are one block a week (Moda Blockhead 2 and Simple Sampler) or one flying geese a day ( the Temperature quilt).  Then there is Dear Jane.  She just plods along when I feel like working on her.  I have several quilts that are basted and ready to quilt.  Also, a few UFOs that I intended to finish this summer.  I really should concentrate on one quilt and get it done.

miss rosie opening dayI haven’t talked about Miss Rosie for a while.  Today’s quilt is called Open Door.  Kerry Nelson, the author of the Miss Rosie book , made her quilt with red, brown and yellow  fabric.

 

 

IMG_0756The  center of my stars were cut from a fabric that I had bought for another project.  The flower squares were the right size and there were enough of them to make the quilt.  The flowers were different colors so I was able to put them in a medallion setting.

IMG_0757My daughter’s quilt was made with red, blue and turquoise stars.  All the fabric came from our stash, so we were able to make quilts with many colors. IMG_0664

 

 

We thought the Miss Rosie project would diminish our stash, but that just didn’t happen.

Have a great day and happy quilting.
