A friend in my quilt group asked each of us to make her a block using a square of her fabric. This is what I came up with. I used a rose from the two fabric quilt pattern "Rose Arbor" that Pacific Rim Quilt Company http://prqc.com/2faq.htm puts out. I love these patterns. They're really easy. I did this one backward, though. The rose fabric should have been on top and appliqued, but I wanted a white border so I put the white on top and appliqued the lines between the petals. I wasn't sure if I was going to like the flower fabric in the shape of a rose, but I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out. I can hardly wait to see the whole quilt when she gets it finished to see what everyone else did with their blocks.

I think the floral was a great idea.  Lovely!

I'm looking to send my Step-Sister's Choice quilt to a new home.  If you're interested in swapping for fabric/scrapbooking supplies, send me a PM.

I've never seen this type of quilting, but glad I have.

Very pretty, and your fabric choice is right on! Lovely! Smiley
