Rose, Art Quilt

Rose, Art Quilt, (5" x 7")
Fannie Narte

I love roses, and I like to paint roses.

This rose art quilt was created using Neocolors and thread sketched with black thread. The background is stipple quilted using irridescent thread. The edges are finished with my signature satin stitch combination using black thread.


Roses are ancient symbols of love and beauty. According to the language of flowers, certain rose colors carry specific meanings.

Pink: Symbolizes grace, sophistication and elegance. It also symbolizes gentle feelings of love and friendship.

Dark Pink: Gratefulness and appreciation.

Light Pink: Admiration and sympathy

Yellow: Often akin to joy and deep friendship or platonic love. In German speaking countries, however, they can mean jealousy and infidelity.

Yellow with red tips: Symbolizes a gesture of falling in love.


This rose is for you.

I enjoyed looking at this quilt today bc my bouquet of beautiful flowers finally had to be put to rest. I did take two roses and put petals in a phone book for pressing.
