Rose of Sharon Quilt & More PA

The last blog post I shared a few photos of Eleanor's (my girlfriend) Rose of Sharon quilt blocks. There are several of us from the PA Tuesday applique group who have the book but she is the first that I've seen to finish so many blocks.  I bet many of you also have this book:

These are Eleanor's blocks.  She laid them out on her bed and I tried to get a good overhead photo but that wasn't possible.  You'd think all quilters would have a sun roof over their beds so we could open it and stand on the roof to shoot our photographs....but no...giggles!

Eleanor is very good...or should I say...excellent with colors.  She doesn't need the fabric with her at the store either....she just knows what will coordinate and what won't.  Amazing!
All needle turn applique....impressive aren't they?  I'm with MJ, if I just had a kit I'd start the project but I just need that jump start.  Know what I mean?
If you like having additional color and layout options, there is also a Rose of Sharon DVD.  There are over 200 printable blocks on the DVD. What color combination would you choose?



  1. Just thinking about that much needle turn applique makes my fingers hurt.

  2. I think these are the most beautiful blocks I've ever seen! Thank you for sharing!

  3. Wow! Beautiful and a lot of work, but so worth it. XOXO

  4. Just jaw-dropping amazing - the colors, the handiwork, everything. Yeah, a kit, that's just what I need too. Just like that - I've loved pink & green for as long as I can remember (which, as you know is a long time...or maybe just yesterday, I never can remember!) so I'd want it just exactly like that. In fact, she's so good, I'd want her to do it for me, so mine would be perfect too! :)

  5. Those blocks are sooooooooooooooooo amazing!

  6. Beautiful! It would be interesting to play with an orange/yellow/brown palette.

  7. WOW! Such beautiful work! My mind can't grasp needle turn. It just seems so difficult.

  8. These blocks are really beautiful, and the fact that they're done by hand makes them even more precious.
