Scandinavian Rose

"Scandinavian Rose" 
by Rosalie Quinlan is my newest project :o)

(I know, I have very little self control at the moment when it comes to new projects)
After I had finished cutting all my Hexagons for my Best Friends Forever Quilt I had a pile of 1.5" squares sitting there for this project but instead of bagging them up for another day I decided to start piecing. 

I am lucky that my stitching isn't too tight so I can cut the panels to size and piece before I stitch.
This project is also likely to be one of my "rotating" (because I am getting a few now) Wall Quilts. As such it (most likely) wont have wadding/batting, just the parlan so if I piece it now all the panel has the parlan and will finish at the same thickness.

Block 1 - Scandinavian Rose
 I LOVE how it looks in "Scrumptious" by Bonnie and Camille
and to think these are my "scraps" from my Best Friends Forever BOM.

This will be a "Long Term Project" and just to give you an idea, the pattern calls for 
4 - 6 Skeins of thread for these two blocks - that's a LOT of thread!

Block 2 - Scandinavian Rose
I am already on my second skein of thread and I'm not half way though Block 1 yet.

Thank you for popping by,
hugs Sharon
