Rose of Sharon

Another  quilt I worked on in 2011 was the Rose of Sharon quilt.  It was a BOM at Intown Quilters here in Atlanta.  I just have to finish the thirteenth block and I can put this one together. 

Corner triangles and setting triangles.

Rose of Sharon is made out of batiks which is not my favorite fabric to applique with. It always feels a little stiff to me but one good thing about batiks they don't ravel.
Happy stitching,


  1. Very good! I like the colors and design.

  2. You are so close to completion--and it looks like it's going to be stunning!

  3. Hand or fused? Either way it's a beautiful quilt. I hve the book, just not the time! I love the look of the batiks although I am not a big purchaser of them. I might have to start a little collection.

  4. beauriful blocks! it will be a gorgeous quilt when you have it together. i'm curious, too, about your chosen method of applique. my rose of sharon quilt is still on my list, but i've gathered the fabrics.

  5. Another close to a finish - good for you! I have resisted batiks for my applique - pretty and so many in my group use them...maybe someday! Thank you for sharing your beautiful work.

  6. This is just beautiful. I love batiks for applique just because they don't ravel. Same with felted wool :)

  7. Exquisite, Nancy!! Your beautiful work continues to bring me joy everytime I see it!! Kris

  8. Stopping by to say hello! I've just linked to Find a Friend Friday. Your applique blocks are wonderful! I've always wanted to make an applique quilt like this! Looking forward to seeing more of your beautiful quilts!

  9. These are beautiful! I have not appliqued in such a long time. I really should pick up needle turn again. Thanks for the inspiration today!
