If you are a sucker for anything ruffled or ruched, then this project is for you! Anna from Home, Heart, and Hands created this darling rosette quilt for her daughter’s room for only $20.
She did it on the cheap using a queen jersey sheet set from Wal-Mart.
While this may seem like a lot of work, the end result’s absolutely gorgeous, and you can’t beat $20 versus $200!
When you look at Anna’s tutorial, you’ll say to yourself “this is as beautiful as it is labor intensive!”
But we don’t say this in a bad way…
In fact, while this does have quite a few steps and many repetitive ones, Anna couldn’t possibly make it any easier.
Her tutorial leaves no stone (step) unturned, guiding you through each move almost as if she’s right there with you as you make your own.
For the price difference alone, if you love the look of a rosette style quilt and can do some light sewing this is really a nice project.
I don’t think this kind of quilt is any different than other traditional quilts; in that it’s something that can last for generations if it’s taken care of and preserved well.
That said, putting a white bed topper in a child’s room means that all bets are off. Still, it’ll be a pretty piece to have around!
Anna was inspired by the Rosette Quilt from Anthropologie.
She mentions the original runs about $350. When she says she only paid $20 for materials, that’s truly remarkable.
Just set aside some hours over a few days to make your own. If you don’t sew, then getting a friend who does can be a great way to divvy up the workload!
Anna provides a very detailed tutorial to sew your own rosette quilt at Home, Heart, and Hands.
