Briar Rose

So, this is what I made with my Strawberry Fields goodness.  It is a quilt for an upcoming workshop and I have named it Briar Rose.  When I was putting it all together I was thinking Briar Patch and then that somehow morphed into Briar Rose, which is the name the good fairies give to Sleeping Beauty in the Disney film - there's a whole lot of Disney getting viewed in this house!

I really liked making this quilt - it came together so beautifully and it didn't hurt that the fabrics are so pretty! 

These are the wee chevrons I made with the leftover HSTs.  They are very small - just over 1" finished.  I was going to turn it into a cushion but I'm not really sure that it is big enough, so I will consider it a while longer.

I no longer have the option of just making it bigger because I donated the remaining HSTs to Scarlett and with a few dabs of glue stick she has whipped up the "quilt" you see below.  

I am off to bind another quilt now.  A few weeks ago I bought "The Binding Tool"  when Fat Quarter Shop had it as their product of the month or some such.  I think I'll have to watch the you tube video a couple of times first.  Wish me luck!


  1. Thank you for the free pattern of Brier Rose. I bought my jelly roll and other fabrics and started cutting this afternoon.

  2. Just finished my Briar Rose quilt, your measurements were spot on! Thank you again for this pattern, it makes a lovely quilt. I'll be making this again.


I'm glad you popped by, your comments really make my day.
