Finally the background pieces will be sewn to the sashing and corner squares to make these two different units. They will be sewn between the main 49 blocks.
Happy Stitching and Happy Spring!

Rose fan is a quilt that started in a class I took with Sue Garmen at the Baltimore on the Prairie applique conference (botpapplique.wix.com). Our class project was the rose fan block from Sue's Bed of Roses BOM patterns (comequilt.com). 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.
