Where to Buy RoseCards

Angel Face Owls

Our Angel Face pattern actually began as Marguerite's Frame Up many years ago.  Our friend Marguerite shared it with us, and it has made the rounds in Thursday clubs, Friday night sews, Friday night Merced College classes, and a basic handout pattern anytime we need a theme print design.

For the Angel Face RoseCard, I wanted to write it up for the 3 One Yard bundles.  It finished 38"x50", with 12 blocks, and used only the three one yard pieces.

Marguerite's is a 20 block quilt and usually had borders, to make it a very generous throw.  The next RoseCard version will be written up for 20 blocks.

Here is a preview.  Dorothy had this wonderful owl batik, and I thought it might work.  It did.  She had the perfect subtle contrast fabrics to go with it.  She decided not to border it.  It looks good, and still finishes a nice size--about 50"x63".
