A flower fool

My mum has been here the whole week and we have had a very nice time working on our exhibition. There is less than two weeks left, luckily my mother has been very productive so I can take my time and work on my big pieces (one wip here). It is the biggest quilt I've worked on my bernina aurora so far, cross your fingers! I will take pictures when it's all finished and hanged.
One day we took a break from sewing and went to the garden center, we both fell hopelessly in love with this beauty. Which resulted in the quilt above. Roses make me weak. And the fact that my peony will bloom this year gives me chicken skin.

Wow - that wip quilt is great (and big too)
re chicken skin - I've never heard this expression but i know exactly what you mean. This is called 'goose bumps' in the UK.

It sounds like you are having an exciting but very busy time...a trip to the garden centre is always relaxing and inspiring (I was there yesterday too)
Good luck with finishing everything off.It's all looking fabulous!
Really love the colours and composition of this one with the pink and yellows...and polka dots :-)

"Chicken skin" that's one of the best expressions I've heard in a long time. I love roses too. I also LOVE your work. I'll be back.

I love both your quilts! Good luck with the big one - it's going to look stunning when it's quilted.

You would probably have cried at the wonderful roses I saw and smelt yesterday in a national trust garden. It took me ages to walk round as I had to keep stopping for another sniff!!
