Free Motion Rosehips on Red

For the free motion sampler quilt that I am making, I decided to have another go at the rosehips design, this time on red.  The colours on the photos are far from accurate - poor daylight, flash a bit harsh etc etc - and in real life the thread is not nearly so pale.  I have had to do some serious tinkering with the pictures editor on the computer so you can at least see what is there.

These rosehips are a delight to do, much easier than some of the designs that I have done that might look less complicated. and red seems the most appropriate colour for them.

I especially enjoy doing the thorns - they add a touch of realism - and also help fill in little gaps here and there.

  1. Congrats on your quilting a fabulous job!!

  2. This is a beautiful little quilt! The quilting is really nicely done. I just finished pruning 28 rose bushes at our new house...and few yes the thorns are most definitely there!

  3. Love how you've quilted them, they look great. I watched your video on FQM this afternoon it looked beautiful.

    1. Thanks Peg. Glad you enjoyed the video. I'm looking forward to making more as soon as we get some decent daylight in the house - not much hope of that at the moment...

  4. Very impressed with what you do.

    1. Thank you Anonymous. The rosehips are one of my favourite designs. I hope to use it again soon.
