Red Rose Quilt Block

I made this one last night. There are 28 pieces in just the red rose section.

This is my pinky fingernail to give you an idea of how small some of these pieces are. Quite by chance, my nail polish matches the rose color. Some days things just work out. LOL.

It's amazing what can be done with paper piecing! I like this block a lot. I am thinking it may make a very nice border for my next quilt. I think I will begin making dozens of these just to have them ready when I need another border. If I used it for the outer border (for a king-sized quilt) I would need about 80 of them. Hmm, that's a pretty lofty goal....maybe I will use for an inner border which would require a lot less of them.

Here are a couple of the potholders I've been making and the big trivet thing (to put large hot pans on) I made Thursday. I like them hanging on the china cabinet in my kitchen. I guess this really should be called a chicken cabinet since that is mostly what I have in it.


  1. Thoses quilted roses are so small and detailed! You are amazing! or crazy! Ha!
    I am so thrilled for you to have these days to relax, kick back and do what you love to do! Enjoy!

  2. I love the rose too! That would make a lovely quilt border as you said. Have fun making them!

  3. You have so much more patience than I do Zoey - the rose is just stunning. I am enjoying all your patchowork projects.

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you both.
