A Basket of Roses

This is the start of a quilt I'm making for my granddaughter Juliet.  I bought the border fabric first and am constructing the quilt around it.  
I drew a rough drawing.  I found many pictures of baskets on the internet and took my ideas from them.

 The basket has lace behind it.  I wanted to give it a bit of substance rather than be the background.

Trying out flowers. It will be a lot of roses with some others.  I think the blue might be too bright. I think I'll put batting behind the roses to make them stand out..  I'm using needleturn and freezer paper on these flowers.

 You can see my border fabric.  

 My basket will have a bow.  This is all experimentation.  We'll have to see how it comes out.

  1. Beautiful!! Can't wait to see more. A basket full of flowers and a flower boarder is such a lovely combination. The lace element in the basket is a brilliant design choice!
    Have a great day.
    Always, Queenie
