Blue and White with Roses

A new week and the blue and white quilt is finished, just have to decide where it will be found a home.
The squares are machine embroidered and the whole quilt has been backed with sky blue cotton fabric.

One of my new samples of an open rose brooch, using hand dyed ribbons. An added embellishment of a bee to bring 'good luck'.
This item will be added to my ETSY shop this week.

A new week with new ideas think a rose's theme will be prominent this week, the MMP Pink Friday (4th July) inspired this train of thought. Visit the MMP boutiques for some lovely gift ideas, some of my favorites are shown on the right all my MMP sisters are very talented and will always give you a good welcome.

  10. Hello Caroline,
    I think the blue quilt is stunning. The shade is almost the same as the color that I painted my kitchen and I love it!
    I think the rose pin is very romantic and the bee just sets it off nicely. (bees are one of my favorite things :) )
