‘The most beautiful of all rose wreaths, if made with care, will result in a quilt that will be a joy forever.”

The instructions for the Farm Journal Rose Wreath are really good for a pattern from this period. Many times there were just template pieces and a drawing of a finished block. I’m not sure about the accuracy of FJ patterns, but I believe mail order patterns in general are more reliable than newspaper patterns, which had more strict space requirements. Also, because this is an appliqué pattern, as opposed to a pieced pattern, there is more flexibility in the design.

The FG pattern pages vary in size — this template page is 8 1/2″ x 11″, and I scanned it at a resolution that should just fit if you save and print it on that size of paper.
