French Rose Baby Quilt


Finished a French Rose Baby Quilt today... for my nephews baby girl to be born in October.

This quilt design uses raw edge appliqué, which is fun and shabby and easy to make, but the down part is that quilting over the raw edges is difficult. It washed up wonderful though. Washing is so forgiving on quilting!

I didn't use a pattern, just cut the base blocks, then the flower layers, and the petals. I did cut away the excess fabric under the flowers.  There are tutorials for the French Rose on line. Fun quilt.

Hi Cat! This little quilt is gorgeous. I apologize for not responding to your last comment - I didn't see it until now...guess I should spend a little more time at my blog. LOL.

Big hugs to the girls, DH, and you too!!!
