paper pieced rose pattern
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 rose paper piecing quilt by Jitka designs and I could not resist to make one for myself.
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 fpp, it is quite easy to sew. You download the pattern, print it out and start working on it.
The 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 ziller pouch or a bag would be great also.
Happy quilting to all. Have fun
