Ragged Roses

My third ever quilt.  I call it Ragged Roses.  I used two blender fabrics - pink and burgandy - and two rose printed fabrics, both with a pale blue background, one with tiny roses and the other with slightly larger roses.  The back of each square used the same dark green blender fabric with little green dots (tones with the leaves on the roses on the front fabrics).  

As you can see, each square has an X sewn through the centre, then I laid out all the squares in a uniform diagonal pattern.  Because the rose print fabric has a pale blue background, it helped break up the pinks and burgandies.  The final step of construction is to snip all the seams to create the 'raggy' effect.  

Size-wise, this is a rectangular knee quilt or crib sized - bit wider than a normal crib quilt, so possibly good for over a toddler bed or as an extra layer at the foot of a single bed in winter.
