Roses are Red will make its public debut in the Brown Sugar Stitchers quilt show May 5, 2007 at the Wesley Chapel Library in Decatur, GA. This is definitely a quilt that needs to be seen up close for it to be properly appreciated.
Roses are Red is large quilt measuring 74 x 94. It showcases a mixture of precise piecing and hand applique. The center of the quilt is comprised of 18 album blocks offset by solid white blocks. The white setting blocks contain the words love, hope and charity, but you must look very closely to see them. The center of the quilt is surrounded by a vine border that is appliqued by hand.
This quilt was made for my personal collection. It is sure to be hit with the Deltas of the world.
