The Rose Collection
Inspired by fabric.
At BeColourful, we not only love the bright colors of the Rainbow collection, but we also love the soft pastels of roses and flowers. They remind us of a summer breeze, the soft movement of lace curtains, humming birds, and beautiful blue skies.
Be inspired by nature and select soft colored fabrics to make your own beautiful BeColourful quilt in blue, pink, peach, lime, delicate green and other Spring and Summer colors. Be happy!

Another breathtaking design. Summer Breeze in the gorgeous pastels of Jacqueline's batik collection. You know she designs her own fabric, right? Curious for her collections? Go to the button 'Fabric Collections', and you will fall in love with them.
The soft pastels in this quilt are so gorgeous. From the powerful center to the faded stars and spikes. Accompanied by the striped black-and-white fabric this quilt is luscious and rich.
The fresh colors are a festival of brightness and happiness. Summer is in your home with this beauty on your wall.
Maybe you recognize the design. It was two years ago as "Making Memories" featured in the Spring issue of Quilters World.
Now Jacqueline enlarged the pattern into this gorgeous wall hanging.

This is Something Blue, my favorite so far. It's an absolutely fabulous and sophisticated design. The blues in this gorgeous design are amazing, and they're so good together with the white, the starry and the striped fabric.

Joyful is made by me only to show how the original quilt ”Joy” would look when you use some more romantic or traditional flower fabrics instead of the bright and colorful fabrics.
We had no intention to release this quilt as a pattern (There was a pattern already called “Joy”) but there were so many request that we decided to make is as a pattern on its own and this is one of the quilts of our Rose Collection.
There is still a pattern available to make this quilt yourself. The pattern package contains the templates of each pattern part on true to life scale, but you have to do the tracing yourself. This will make the journey to make this quilt even more challenging!

This is not only a New York Beauty quilt, but also one of the most traditional designs.
A lot of quilters love to make New York Beauties. The spiked circles, the blocks, the lovely corners with the half round circles. It definitely is a pretty quilt.
I've designed and makes this quilt years ago. It is still a pleasure to look at. The pink colors, the flower fabric and the stripes making this quilt timeless.
This quilt is beautiful in any color scheme.
That's why I've decided to re-design this beauty in awesome lilac colors as Black Beauty
