If your birthday was in June–Happy Birthday!
Roses are YOUR birth flower.
Roses mean love, honor, faith, confidence…depending on the color and have been grown for more than 5000 years!
ROSES ARE EASY!
Roses were my grandmother’s favorite flower–one half her yard was dedicated to formal roses, but until recently, I was too intimidated to plant roses in my garden. They seemed so fussy-special feedings, pruning…aphids!
Then I watched Paul Zimmerman’s Craftsy Class: The Gardener’s Guide to Growing Roses. It’s a very practical guide that takes the mystery out of growing roses, discusses the history of roses and helps you choose roses to suit your gardening personality-from low maintenance shrubs to more formal tea roses. I now have more than a dozen roses (all low-maintenance) in my garden and I love them!
It’s the perfect time to pick up a gardening class–or one of a machine quilting class!
May I recommend:
MACHINE QUILTING ROSES
We have stitched two different rose motifs:
And the messy spiral, Christmas Rose HERE
ROSE PAPER PIECING
Our friend, Peggy created a Rose paper pattern HERE
May your quilts and your gardens be filled with roses!
