Gerberas in my garden

Out and about the garden this morning taking some images of new sewing projects (available in March), I stopped to marvel at this wonderful gerbera flower. I was given this plant by a friend who worked at plant research centre. Unfortunately the plant must be sterile as it has never reproduced but just take a look at the single bloom......

It is an enormous 17cm across the face!

So here is my version of the Lucy Boston quilt.......the quick version that is......."Lucy in a Hurry"!

The pattern will be available mid March......
Happy stitching


Silent Auction

The silent auction item was kindly donated, and is a quilt top made up of the same design as the raffle quilt (spiders web) of a similar era.

I believe that the stitching is good with little wear in the overall top.
I havn't seen the top at this point, I am just the messenger (so to speak) passing along this information along to you in good faith from members of the Avalon Quilt Group whom I know.
Hope you can all come along and have a wonderful day.
