Miss Rosie continued

I realized that I didn’t finish telling about all thirteen Miss Rosie quilts.

Raise the roof is comprised of 32  log cabin blocks and 32 sawtooth star blocks.  The sawtooth star block is a quarter square triangle block surrounded by flying geese with half square triangle corner squares.  The blocks are colored half dark and half light diagonally.  The log cabin blocks are also colored dark and light diagonally.  The blocks are set in a barn raising setting.

My daughter’s blocks were in purples and yellows.  Her quilt was long arm quilted by Gail Mintkin.

 

It is so interesting how different colors can make a totally different quilt.  We both enjoyed the project but were glad when the last stitch was finished.  Miss Rosie took over our life for a while.

Have a great day and happy quilting.
