This month another pattern appeared in print! The June 2011 issue of Quilter's World features my Victorian Roses Bed Runner pattern. No, I didn't make the cover this month -- that was sort of a once in a lifetime thing -- but they did do a nice job featuring and illustrating the pattern.
I really fell in love with this rose pattern when I first came up with it. It was inspired by an old floral basket embroidery pattern I found in a collection of vintage patterns that I got from my sister. She finds incredible stuff at garage sales! I adapted the flowers and leaves from the basket pattern and redesigned it into the wreath and single rose motifs in the quilt. I had a ball playing around with colors on this and even came up with several other designs for quilts using this motif. Here is just one of them:
I know it is really "girly" but sometimes I just love that victorian look! LOL
Thanks for checking out my new block of the month and my new publications!
