Last BOM for Rosebud Lane Done!

Finished the house blocks for the BOM Rosebud Lane and now next month will be the assembling and setting instructions. This one is the "Rose Petal Tea Room" and has stained glass windows. I couldn't decide what to start on next and can only do so much hand quilting (on the purses quilt) at a time and my shoulder tells me to stop, so I opted for some Boxy Star blocks from Bonnie's Quiltville site made from scrappy 2.5" strips. I thought I would use up more of my stash than I did--isn't that always the way--it never goes down as fast as we think it should! I just love Bonnie's Quiltville site--she makes the best use of scraps I have ever seen and her blog is lots of fun to read, too!

Thanks to everyone who left such kind comments about our doggie's passing--we still miss him and Buster, the 14-year old black poodle still goes searching for him each night outside--at least that's what we think he is doing!

Let quilting help you make someone smile!

Hi Jan ~ The last block for Rosebud Lane is beautiful! I look forward to seeing the quilt when you get it all together. "Boxy Squares" looks neat....I've saved that pattern for future reference....with all the projects I'm in the middle of right now, I'm sure to need de-stashing!

Your last block is really pretty, I love all of this BOM blocks. The boxy stars are fun to make, and they go together so quickly. One JR will make a good size PL quilt!
