Topeka Rose - Rose Garden BOM block 4
How organised am I! My quilts are all delivered for the Adelaide Quilt show 8-11 November, and I have made the November Rose Block a whole week early. Got my life (temporarily) back in hand. It is now available to download from the Legend and Lace website.
Hope you like this months block - Topeka Rose. I did a little research on it and found a number of references, including one at the Spencer Museum (type in "Topeka Rose" for your search). There are a few different designs, and I have used this image to create my drawing.
I thought I would give you a little step-by-step look at how I completed my block.
Perfect Circles to complete the circle in the centre. From the pack you choose the one you need. Cut out a circle of fabric larger than the size, do a running stitch around the edge of the fabric, pull up the stitches. Press, remove the circle template, press again, and stitch in place.
I will start working ahead with the rest of the blocks while I can, and have them available as soon as you might need them. Hope you are liking these lovely traditional floral blocks.
