Ruffled Roses
by Sue Garman
http://www.kinshipandkompany.com

Sue Garman has done it again! Ruffled Roses is a quilt that will increase your skills, make you smile, and have your family in awe. You may want to make this your first Show Quilt. With appliqué, paper piecing, traditional piecing, mitered corners and more, you will become a better quilter while creating an heirloom treasure. Also, we asked Sue to document how she decided on the quilting patterns. Later in the year you will get a lesson by Sue on how to quilt the quilt. Ask questions and get help in the forum, or help someone else on the journey.

Each month, you will download the pattern for a new part of this quilt online. Sue assures us that this quilt looks complicated but is achievable by everyone. Join the Fun. What a wonderful way to start each month!

Introduction Package: Ruffled Roses is a medallion quilt. The center block is set on point and is surrounded by many borders. Each month, directions for various parts of the quilt will be provided online; your task is to print out the instructions and make whatever is called for. You can always modify the instructions, of course, to suit your skill level and your personal likes and dislikes. The finished quilt, as designed, measures approximately 87 inches square. There are twelve separate patterns. Each pattern includes blocks and/or border units, and assembly instructions. As you complete each set of units, your quilt top will grow until the final border is added.

Do purple roses really exist in Nature? Of course they do –they are believed to represent both enchantment and love at first sight. Perhaps that is why they are at the center of the Ruffled Roses quilt. The center block of this quilt is appliqued. If you do not do appliqué, feel free to use the same fabrics that you would otherwise use for the appliqué, and make a favorite 15-inch pieced block. Throughout the making of this quilt, you should feel free to modify your quilt in any way you desire.

This month, you will be adding two borders, and separating them with “floaters.”Floaters are small border strips – usually very narrow – that fill space between two pieced borders, so that the piecing “fits” onto the quilt center. The beauty of floaters is that they can also be used very effectively to visually separate borders, as well as to insert accent colors into a quilt top.
Ruffled Roses - 2Instruction files are no longer availableMargo's additional directions replaces one of the pieced borders with one wide floater and includes directions for folded corners to get perfect miters. She also shows how you can twirl your intersections on the lattice borders so they press really flat. You have options, and you may add some new tricks to your quilting tool belt.

Sue loves swag borders, especially when they pop into the middle of a quilt, like an afternoon surprise, instead of waiting to appear along the sunset edge of the quilt. This month’s swag border softens the overall look of the quilt with its ruffled edge.
Ruffled Roses - 3Instruction files are no longer availableIf you are using the Beloved Beauties kit follow Margo's additional instructions to see which fabrics to use. She also gives instructions for mitering a border and for adding a line of mini-piping in the swag units.

This month, another border will be added: a four-patch border. Making a scrappy border out of an assortment of fabrics is a great way to make your eyes dance across the surface of a quilt. After you finish the four-patch border, you will also make four pieced swag border units. These will be used in Month 12, but starting them now will make the work of Month 12 much easier.
Ruffled Roses - 4Instruction files are no longer availableFollow these instructions if you are using the Beloved Beauties kit. Margo explains which fabrics are substituted on the pieced swag units and shows how to twirl the intersections of the 4-patches to make everything lay nice and flat.
