Second Hand Rose

I have taken a break from the long term block of the month quilt blocks that I am working on to make a Jo Morton design called "Second Hand Rose".  I just added the borders to the quilt top and pinned it up on the design wall for a photo.


I used some Jo Morton fabrics and others from stash.  The paisley border style print is a Minnick and Simpson piece.  The black border pieces with the houses is a Jan Patek fabric.  All came from stash except the paisley.  It was not one that could be mitered to make a pretty design in the corners so I went with a more prim style look.

The pattern is in Jo Morton's "Remembrances" book.


There is a second quilt pattern in  the book that strikes my fancy and that is the pink and brown one in the lower left corner.  It would be a 36 inch square quilt.  I have to think about it a bit before plunging in to another new project.

  14. Second Hand Rose is definitely not that. It's beautiful. The applique is perfect and the border choices are fantastic. I have that book as well, and have always had my eye on that same pink and brown quilt. It always feels good when you're able to use stash and make something so fantastic. I like your Halloween mat as well.๐ŸŽƒ
