Lovabel's Roses Block

I promised myself many years ago that I will complete this Lovabel's Quilt in memory of Laurene Sinema who found the original quilt from the 1930s. Thanks to Lynette for choosing the patterns for her suitcase challenge and that had brought back my memory of this pattern. This is the fifth block and number six is almost finished. There are twenty blocks in total, but I think I am only going to make either nine or twelve blocks. I do love working on them, but I have other things I want to do as the same time...! 

In the original block Laurene used a different colour for each rose, but we have a rose bush 'Just Joey' exactly the colour at these and I just love it, so I decided to have one colour for all three roses.

Enjoy

The roses are beautiful -- how did you do the leaves? They are most interesting.
