paper pieced rose pattern

By Hatun Comak Wednesday, June 6, 2018

I've recently been busy with foundation paper piecing trying new patterns each day. Epp has always been my favourite but foundation paper piecing is something else. It is like solving a puzzle. Seeing the images coming to life step by step at the back of the paper is great fun and excitement to me.

Lately I was attracted by this lovely paper pieced rose pattern by Jitka designs and I could not resist to make one for myself. So I would like to share my version of paper pieced rose pattern.

The rose pattern by Jitka Designs is free to download. If you are a beginner it may look complicated but once you get familiar with the principles of foundation paper piecing, it is quite easy to sew. You download the pattern, print it out and start working on it. Before making this rose pattern you may like to have a look at foundation paper piecing tutorial

The rose pattern includes four sections. When you finish piecing the sections seperately, piece A-B sections together first, then add C and finally D.
I love the result. I haven't decided what to do with this beautiful pink rose. It may turn into a mini quilt for rug mug. Using it on a zipper pouch or a bag would be great also.

Happy quilting to all. Have fun.

UPDATE: It seems that the pattern is not available free anymore. So below is the link for some other free paper piecing rose patterns which are all free to download. So, have a look at them and find your favourite one.
