Rose Block for Dearest Boy

A quick post for today.  I am sharing the Rose block that is next in line for the Dearest Boy" album quilt.  There is a story that goes with the rose block.  It is to represent "Sister Rose".  I won't spoil the story for you.  You will have to read it in the pattern set.


Carole, Cathy, and Julie should have their blocks posted also.  Click on their name to ride the magic carpet to their blog.

This is a nice one, Karen. I told Doreen that I am watching you all from the sidelines because, as you know, I don't possess the skills for this method of applique'.
