Good morning, Quilters!
Today, we have a round-up of the Rose & Dot quilt block, but before we get started, I would like to wish a hearty, WELCOME! to those of you who have joined us over the last couple of weeks. We are delighted that YOU are here!!
In addition to daily quilting tips, you’ll find step-by-step free motion quilting tutorials (under Motifs at the top!) and tons of tricks for free motion quilting, choosing the right thread, and so much more.
I promise you’ll learn a lot and stay inspired!
FREE Quilt Block from The Splendid Sampler 2
My grandmother, Rose and my mother, Dorothy loved to quilt, garden, and cook – and they passed that love on to me. (Or at least love for one of those things…. HA!)
Consequently, when Pat Sloan and Jane Davidson asked me to design a block for the Splendid Sampler 2, my inspiration was clear – my mother and grandmother! The Rose & Dot block is one of 100 blocks included in the Splendid Sampler 2 book. In addition, it is included in the twenty FREE blocks from The Splendid Sampler 2 offered online!
Download the pattern, then check out my tips for stitching the Rose & Dot quilt block HERE.
