After a break of more than a year, I got back to my Ruffled Roses, the 2011 BOM from www.thequiltshow.com. Here is where I am today:
This is as far as I'll get in adding to the center for quite a while because the next 8 sets of instructions involve making basket blocks and elaborate pieced swag borders. So lots more piecing but I love how it's coming!
This week I'm gathering hand projects and some machine piecing projects together so I can easily work on them when I feel able--next Monday August 20, I'm having my right knee replaced. Five years ago I had the left replaced so I know what to expect. That's both a blessing and a curse! Not looking forward to this but it needs to be done so I can walk/exercise/live more easily. Wish me luck!
