Winter Rose - Paper Piecing Pattern

I was going to make a pink rose for a friend.  Then I thought: why not send her something that would represent me a bit more closely?  So a blue winter rose was born.

I also wanted to make something that reflects how I perceive my friend.  So I started embroidering a pink rose.  Then I added borders around it and made it into a pouch.  I will put the blue rose inside the pouch and mail it to her.  Unfortunately I can’t give you more details because she doesn’t know she is getting this yet and she is a frequent visitor of this blog.

Since I cannot send this package to everyone, I will share the rose quilt pattern and the rose embroidery pattern with you.  Thank you for being so supportive and encouraging.  You can download the patterns at the following links until the end of the month of January for free –
