Ruffled Roses BOM - 3

Ruffled Roses Quilt
February Block
err......... border........... but anyway.

Last month we began with the center block
 A close up of the raw edge applique and hand stitching I did.

Now lets add some borders, to create this;

 The thing about this BOM is that all the pieces are small,
I don't usually work this small, so it 
is quite trying, but I love the results
and if one is not challenged to improve themselves
then what is the point?

 So I began cutting and here is what I had.
 and this
 Sue writes very good instructions.
 So, I sewed the strips together and cut them into tiny units, 1 3/8 inches wide.

 Next is paper piecing the 230 little triangles and 112 strips together.

 Paper piecing helps to keep things more accurate
you put the fabric under the paper and sew on the lines.
 Just on either side of part one there.
 the dotted lines are for cutting the block down to size
which is 2 1/2 inches.

 Chain stitching each one twice.  You use a small stitch so
once done the paper tears away with ease.
 And here is the result

 Now lets sew them together to make an X

 First join two together then put two sets together, be sure to
pin so everything lines up (finished these up today, took awhile).
 To get this........
Ok, sew first we put on a floater (burgundy), 
next the stripped border, then another
floater (also burgundy)
then the X border.
Sew, what do you think?

Pretty cool?

Next months additions
(well this month cause I am late and it is March now, LOL)
Sew until next month.

May God bless you and keep you.

I am linking up to Pink Saturday,

It looks beautiful. I'd never do it. The size of your strips looks about like the pieces I just threw out as being too small of a scrap! But when you are done, you will have something really pretty.
