Coming Up Roses

At a quilt retreat I came across a pink Watercolor bundle that I just couldn’t resist, it had my name all over it. I had plenty of projects at the time and didn’t need another one but I just had to have the fabrics. I sorted the fabrics by value and came up with a simple design. I am proud to say that I even used the leftover pieces in the backing. I had a lot of fun quilting this one, adding all kinds of designs. The colours actually made me think of raspberries and sorbet but I couldn’t come up with anything that I liked, and suddenly I knew it had to be roses for this quilt, and at this point I not only had the quilting design but also the name.

Original design, machine pieced and machine quilted by Beatrice Rieske
