Skizzie's Roses

"Lots of red and she loves roses"






That's what our friend Robert told me about his older sister Skizzie. Robert was going through a divorce and had no place to live till his sister let him stay with her in her modest little house .
Robert wanted me to make Skizzie a quilt for Christmas.
I when through all my quilt books to come up with something RED!!!
A short trip to a quilt shop and again looking through a ton of books I came across this quilt pattern

The book is "Creative Quilt Collection" from That Patchwork Place. From Tea In The Garden by Cynthia Tomaszewski .



When I saw the picture of the quilt I just knew then that I wanted to make it .
It was Dec. and the quilt shop had lots of reds to chose from . I saw the fabric with the Roses on it that I could Fussy cut . The shop had all the other fabric from the collection so I knew it was a go .

I love to machine applique and don't really get a chance to do much of it so this was perfect .I was going to play with this one !!



I made this a queen size . Here it is on my bed .I had enough fabric after I made the quilt that I made her 2 pillow shams to match . It left my house before I could take a picture of it .


She was so surprised to open her gift on Christmas morning and find this quilt in it .Robert said she CRYED!!
Lots of RED and LOTS of ROSE
