Rose Fan quilt

Rose fan is a quilt that started in a class I took with Sue Garmen at the Baltimore on the Prairie applique conference ( Our class project was the rose fan block from Sue's Bed of Roses BOM patterns ( There are pictures from the class and of the quilt on my Sept. 11, 2014 post. I made four of the blocks to make a quilt for my dining room table.


One of the things we worked on in class were stuffed berries and this quilt has plenty of them. I love the way they stand out from the quilt.


The blocks are 14 inches and there was not a lot of unfilled space for special quilting but I got a couple little feather sprigs around the vases.

Even the berries on the vases puff out nicely.

The border fabric is a little busy for the quilting designs to show, but I repeated the feather sprigs.

I usually have a vase or glass bowl on the center of my table quilts but the secondary design of the berries keeps catching my eye whenever I walk by and I can't quite put anything else on top of it yet.

Happy Stitching,
