My local guild is having a challenge in honor of its 30th anniverary...next month ( talk about last minute!)  I have an idea of what I want to do, but I am having difficulty in finding a pattern/directions for making a 3D rose that I can sew onto the quilt.  No larger than 3 or 4 inches in diameter, smaller is best.  Any ideas???

Hey Caren12-

I am making roses for my sister's wedding in August using the templates made by Clover USA. They have 3 sizes, and the large one is about 3 inches across.  I like that the back can be flattened to sew onto a quilt surface.  Here's a link for you:

Other than that, there's a bunch of ways to devise a 3D rose, with separate petals, etc.  What did you have in mind?

Those are lovely.  I have not seen those.  I've got several of the yoyo makers but I have not seen the rose makers.  Those would be perfect.  Thanks so much!  I bet they would be great for a wedding. Show pics when your finished.

No problem, they are pretty easy to make, and a fat quarter can make a couple of roses based on how the fabric twists.

We, of course, want to see your challenge quilt when it's done!

It takes an eternity for new tools to drift South, I couldn't find the rose maker anywhere in Mobile!  So I made ribbon roses.  The quilt turned out pretty good.  I was working in a tight timeline.  The leaves are velevt and taffita, the vines are made from wool yarn.  Everything is fused, raw edge applique.  I wasn't happy with the butterflys so I put navy tulle over it.  There are 3 bead ladybugs and a beaded spider on a silver web.  It was a lot of fun.

WOW!  That is such a beauty!  I love the colour of the roses, they really stand out.  The butterflies have also caught my eye... just love the way you have done them... a wonderful piece!
