RED ROSE in Anna Lena's

Karen Snyder of Anna Lena's just shared her photo of RED ROSE made in her fabric lines from Timeless Treasures fabrics.  She has a very reasonably priced kit available on her website, annalena.com.  Karen is the author of 2 fat quarter books, Bundles of Fun and Fat Quarter Fun--great stuff--along with her Quilts in my Garden and Big-Print Quilts.

In her latest newsletter, Karen recommends our RED ROSE pattern for college kid quilts.  It is fast and thrifty and you don't have to fret over the use or abuse it might get in a college kid's room.

Rocky and Bullwinkle ANGEL FACE

Not just a pretty face, our ANGEL FACE can feature more than one fabric.  Rocky and Bullwinkle here are the perfect 3 to be featured here.  The pattern has 12 blocks, and one 10" strip from a third yard of fabric will yield 4 squares.  3 fabrics times 4 squares equals 12 blocks--I love it when the math works out to our advantage.

So the changes in ANGEL FACE to make this a great kid size or even big kid throw 48"x 60":
1/3 yd each of 3 Theme Fabrics
2/3 yd each of 2 Frame Fabrics
1 yd Border, cut 5 1/2"
1/2 yd Binding
....Less than 4 yards of fabric--nifty and thrifty.
