Three-Part Rose Block Finished!

The three-part rose is a very simple block to applique. Again, I've chosen the button-hole applique technique, as this is my favorite method and is also block three of the Sunny Floral Applique Quilt design.

If you're making this quilt along with me, I would love to hear about and see your photos! You can e-mail them to me (I can post them here if you give me permission) if you wish.

Happy quilting!


  1. It's very pretty! I can't wait to see the whole quilt!

  2. Thanks, Terri! I am really enjoying working on this. I've started the third block now, but I'm also working on three other quilts besides this one! All of them need finished (except this one) by the end of September. I had planned on this quilt being a year-long project, but I'm going through it quicker than I anticipated.

  3. that is so pretty almost rempts me to try applique again.

  4. For your button-hole applique technique, you don't mention how much of your background fabric you catch with your needle (or whatever the bottom fabric is). I've never appliqued, but what you've shown is beautiful, so it makes me want to try. I just don't understand how much of the underlying fabric you catch with the needle. dmj53(at)hotmail(dot)com

  5. Deborah, I've edited the button-hole applique tutorial to answer this question. Thanks for asking! As for the answer, You stay as close to the applique piece as possible. When you catch the background fabric, you go all the way through to the back of it. Hope this answers! I'll also e-mail you. :)
