Where to Buy RoseCards

Wednesday, September 7, 2011


I cut my complete lines of fabric into Sample Slices 5"x 9 1/2".  Rectangles are such a great shape and this size shows off so much more of the fabric than 5" charm squares. 

Amy Butler's Soul Blossoms is 33 pieces.  I figured that 2 sets should be good for one of the Slice and Spacer patterns.  I chose PERFECT MOMENT to get some length as well as airiness to the prints.
This may be a new card someday--it would work nicely with a Layer Cake.

Meanwhile, here are the altered measurements for this one.  Fabric for the Spacers and Row Sashing--1 1/2 yd.  Cut the Spacers 1 1/2" wide.  To offset the blocks, cut 2 3/4" off the right end of the odd rows, 2 3/4" off the left end of the even rows.  The top finishes 58"x 63".

Millie P's Display

Millie P's in Anoka MN is a must-see shop--chock full of brilliant, colorful projects.  Here is an idea for displaying the cards that owner Becky Carlson made, customizing the size for our cards.
