Roses of Remembrance Price: $Cdn 79.99 (~USD$63.99) for the 1st month, $19.99 for the subsequent 11 months
12-month Block of the Month program.

This beautiful applique quilt is the result of the Sharon Pederson Rose of Sharon challenge where over 850 participants submitted Rose of Sharon Blocks. There were 12 blocks selected for the final quilt, which were made into this quilt called Roses of Remembrance. It measures 63” square when finished.

Some of the fabrics that were originally produced for this program are no longer available. Therefore, by necessity, we had to substitute some (not all) of the fabrics. Most importantly, the sashing we are using is the original fabric from the program. As the original light greeny-yellow taupe background fabric is no longer available, we are substituting a light creamy apricot batik, which is warmer in hue than the original. Please rest assured that all substitutions are made with high quality batiks.

Each fabric is labelled noting the quantity required and the size to cut. There is enough fabric to do this applique either by hand or machine.

In the first month of the program, you will receive “The Rose of Sharon” Block Book, the stencil package (which is super handy for either hand or machine applique), 3.4 meters of background fabric, and the flower fabrics for block 1. The entire background fabric is being provided in this first month to eliminate any possible problems with dye lot differences.

For the 2nd to 11th months, you will receive the fabric for either two blocks or the side setting triangles.

For the final 12th month, you will receive the fabric for the corner triangles, sashing, border, and binding fabric.

When you read the book you receive in the first month, you will see instructions for a quilt-as-you-go techinique. For this technique, you would require purchasing an additional 1.55 meters for the sashing. You would also require the backing for this method. The book recommends 3.1 meters backing for this. We strongly recommend reading the book when you receive your first months' package and decide if this method is for you. If you do decide to use this method and wish to purchase the fabric, please let us know and we will charge and ship it with your next month's package. We may no longer have in stock the exact same fabric for the sashing but can help you choose an alternative. We have blue mottled bali fabric available for the backing.

Should you decide you do not want to use the quilt-as-you-go method, but would like to purchase blue mottled bali fabric for backing, we recommend 3.65 meters if not pre-washing or 3.95 meters if pre-washing. Please let us know if you would like this backing fabric, and we will charge and ship with your next month's package.
