"Everything's Coming Up Roses" here at!  Each month during 2005, I will present a new block for you to make.  At the end of the year, you will have a quilted "garden" of traditional blocks.  Sashing and border instructions will be included with the last month's block instructions.

Fabric:  Here is a chart of the fabrics that I used in my quilt, along with the yardage requirements to make the quilt as shown above.  Start with the border fabric (Fabric 6).  This needs to be a large print (floral or non-floral), preferably on a dark background.  Pull two medium or dark colors (Fabric 1 & Fabric 3) and one light color (Fabric 2) from the large print to use in your blocks.  Add a cream print or solid (Fabric 4) to finish out the block fabrics.  Finally, pull a dark solid or print (Fabric 5) that resembles the dark background of the large print for the sashing strips.
