Another 14 roses












I I added another 14 roses to the board today.   And now the decision which layout I like better.     Do you have a favorite?

I took this photo for the beginners in this group.   If you have a place where directions call for you to sew across the diagonal, then trim.   I like to sew a second line a machine foot away into the discard area.   Then I have many little squares to trim which I can make into something else (very small)   The white squares here were 2″ and the discard triangle netted 1 3/8″ squares.   I wouldn’t want to sew those little squares, but this way they are easy and after several quilts, I have a good number of them.  Yes, I suppose all in different places, but maybe I could find them and put them in one place and do something with them

I also interviewed a prospective farm helper, but that may not happen.   It’s hard to find someone who wants to do physical labor  – especially gardening and a bit of sheep work.
