The Fandango Tango Goes On

After a bit of a break, I'm back taking another stab at Rosettes. Today's mission is to cut out the 320 2" squares required to put the second "ring" around the blocks. It's like a never-ending quilt, this one.

Central Park by Kate Spain came in yesterday and it is yummy! I bought myself a FQB using some Christmas money, so if anyone has any pattern suggestions for that one, I'm all ears.

It's now six months till my trip to the US and I took the big step of booking my flights over the weekend thanks to a well-timed Qantas sale. I just need to survive a semester of uni then I can really start getting excited.

That's a lot of 2" squares! Since I hate cutting fabric, that would be a real chore for me.

Where are you going to be while in the US?

Keep going Kate! I remember I spent a whole day cutting fabrics for this quilt - a bit over 3 months till I'll be at the retreat and starting my quilt top. I enjoy seeing how you're going with it.

Good luck with the next ring on Rosettes!

I've seen one finished project online using Central Park, here's a link.


She used McGuffey by Carrie Nelson for MIss Rosie's Quilt Company.

I don't think that fabric could make a bad quilt.

Good luck with your next steps in the quilt. Where are you traveling to the U.S.? I live part time in Michigan and part time in Texas. Let me know if you need any info:)
