Rose Charity Quilt

 My baby sister taught a class to our RS church group.  They asked for an easy charity quilt pattern.  As soon as she told me what she needed, I thought of this pattern from Mary Quilts.  Mary is so generous with her free quilt patterns.  My sister asked me to make a sample to show the group.  This is my sample.
 I did my own quilting.  This is a new pattern for me.  I got my inspiration from Patsy Thompson's free quilting patterns.  She has also been generous in sharing her designs.  I recommend them to all free motion quilters.
 As you can see, I am getting better.  I'm not perfect yet, but I am working on it.
You can see the quilting better from the back, although the front hides more mistakes. I am still proud of my efforts.  A charity quilt is a good time to be more adventurous and try new things.
I gave this quilt to a friend of mine, Brenda Reudas, who is a cancer survivor.
