    French Rose Quilt Question

    Hi friends!
    I am working on the French Rose Quilt. I don't particularly care for square quilts, and I would like this one to be a little longer. (I am very tall). Has anyone made this and extended it at all? I'm having trouble figuring out the fabric requirements

    Hey Erica! Currently, what is the dimensions of the quilt you're working on now? And...can you post a pic?

          It's supposed to turn out 57x57. So far I'm still just cutting the flowers image.jpg

            I always liked that quilt. Is there templets for it or did you just wing it?

              You will need 6" X width of fabric for each extra row of flowers. Also need to add extra border length. Add 6 " per row If you are not making it wider your top and bottom borders will remain the same

                  Thank you! Do you have any idea how much extra background fabric I would need? I don't know why I'm having such a time figuring this out. I don't want to mess it up!

                    What is the size of your background squares? You will get approx. 15 6" squares from a 1/2 yard of fabric. Hope this helps.

                      The blocks looked like they are 6". That is the 6 X WOF I was referring to. As for the flowers it looks like you have kind of scrappy flowers so you may have enough of your original fabrics to cut them out
