While visiting San Antonio yesterday, I popped into a local Quilt Market show. Memories by the Yard had a beautiful booth there, full of RoseCard merchandise. Here we have an Iced Tea sample--a nice masculine look in the browns.

Need a baby quilt quick? A nine block RED ROSE will do the trick. This is the sweet Zoo Babies line from Windham. They had given me 5" strips of the whole line--perfect for this pattern. I could easily make a blue boy or green/yellow neutral, too. This little cuddler finishes about 41" square, and I can usually fit it on a width of fabric for the back. Remember your Community Service work with this one, too--I have made some wonderfully colorful kits with scraps.

Our Pine Tree Quilt Guild offers workshops for junior quilters--unique in Northern California. Guild members and moms volunteer to help with the projects. Leader Dianne chose 2 RoseCards this time for project options--TOWER BRIDGE and SARATOGA. It was great for me to be there and watch the group in action. Our simply fun quilts were working well for the kids. Can't wait to show the finished products--they are already doing some fabric variations.

How sweet it is that Robert Kaufman named this group Night and Day. I thought it perfect for the OPENING NIGHT pattern, especially with that wonderful stencil rose print with the hint of red. So I now have a quick new model and new kit. Amy of Block by Block in Carthage MO calls this her "4 Hour, $40 Quilt" class. She says it has been a bit hit--thanks, Amy.

Nothing crazy about this clever display at The Quilt Asylum in McKinney, Texas. A sample drapes the round table/stand--good choice of pattern--it shows well from all angles. Atop is a wash bucket full of a variety of bundles, at a great level for digging through. The bundles have a nice-sized label with pattern options listed. RoseCard patterns sit in the little sewing drawer just behind the tub.
