Spring CQ....Rosebuds

This is the Compassion rose that climbs up along the corner of my house. I love those buds against the blue sky.
My interpretation of this was an experiment, as I had to figure out from scratch what to do....

These actually took awhile; it was fairly fussy work. But I think the concept has potential, and I will be writing about the process for the next issue of CQMagOnline, which will come out at the end of July.

Here is how they look in the context of the whole quilt....


Well, the sun is still out, so I am off to do some real gardening!
Happy Father's Day to all....

The roses are gorgeous. It's inspired that you are adding elements from your real garden into this CQ. I know you've been doing it all along, but I just "got" it.
