Sadies Roses Handmade Quilt
There is no such thing as a blue rose, which is what initially caught my eye about this Sadies Rose Handmade Quilt at Piece and Plenty Quilt Guild’s 2017 bi-annual quilt festival in Rolla, Mo. Over the years, aquamarine has also been a favorite personal clothing color so finding them combined in this handmade quilt was doubly-enticing.
The design of this Sadies Roses handmade quilt is more modern than the traditional roses quilts like Vintage Yellow Roses quilt.
Looking closer at this more modern handmade quilt design, the rose blocks reminded me of some I have seen featured in Baltimore Album handmade quilts, where each of the quilt blocks is different.
Instead of varying the design, Sadies Roses handmade quilt features the same applique design in each of the handmade quilt blocks.
Because this is not a traditional handmade quilt, the quilt maker gave the Sadies Roses handmade quilt blocks more color by making the centers yellow. Rose buds in aqua blue border the roses as well as wrap around the edge of the handmade quilt.
As far as this handmade quilt’s story, there are several starting with where the quilter found the quilt pattern.
Although there is little more information about why she was disappointed with the machine quilting, the handmade quilt itself was nicely recognized.
Considering the competition at this quilt festival, third place is a very nice placement for a handmade quilt with “disappointing” quilting!
