Ta Da!

I was motivated ... well into the night.  The extra Wonky Rose blocks were made and borders were added. Here's my Lovely Finish for February.

   A Whole Lotta Love

This quilt embodies many of the things I love about group quilts.  I am looking forward to quilting it, but until my sewing machine problems are resolved, I'll settle for the knowledge that my perennial work-in-progress is no more.  I finished a few other projects this month, but this 11th hour finish feels the most satisfying.

Since everyone seems to be talking about the rose blocks, I plan to put together my notes, which were previously published here and on the Block Lotto and create a print-friendly document for anyone who's interested.  Leave me a comment and I'll be sure to email you when it's ready.  These blocks really a great way to play with scraps.

Leftover blocks for Back Art
If you made some of the word blocks for the Block Lotto that I won three years ago and don't see them ... they could be part of my plan for some back art for this quilt.

Updating to join the linky parties, Weekend Update on the Block Lotto, Fresh Sewing Day on LilyQuilts and Can I get a Whoop Whoop on Confessions of a Fabric Addict.

Love the quilt! And the roses are the perfect touch. Just recently I've become interested in the roses. I saw a bunch of yours on Flicker. I would love to have the info once you get it together. Thank you! Toni

Two of my favourite things -- wonky roses and letters. It came together beautifully. this is a winner of a quilt. Have you seen my tutorial on joining wonky rose blocks with curved piecing? http://scrapsandstrings.blogspot.com

I love it! I see two of the words that I made for the lotto. I made roses too, but don't remember what they looked like.

What a great quilt! Love the border. I'd like to try those roses.

Are you a fan of Janet Evanovich? Most of Ranger's conversations with Stephanie consist of one word - Babe. When I saw that leftover word, all that came to mind was putting it in the middle on the back of the quilt with no other words or flowers. Of course, if you don't read the series, it probably makes no sense to you ;0
I love the Stephanie Plum series!

I love it! I'm reminded of the Alice in Wonderland song: She's painting the roses red! But your nothing like the Red Queen. This is so much fun and an inspiration for me and my blocks. I plan to add lots of different heart blocks to mine.

I love your quilt. The roses are wonderful... I think I know how they are made, but I always think dumb stuff like that. I would love the directions. Thanks for the offer. Also the words are great. An all word quilt is on my bucket list...(gotta be the longest list anywhere.) Thanks for sharing your quilt.
Hugs
