Brunnera is a flower in the Boraginaceae family or more commonly known Forget-me-not family. As with most flowers, there are many species of Brunnera. The best known is Siberian bugloss. Its interesting heart-shaped leaves grabbed my attention so I decided to make a new flower block.

I named my new quilt Fireworks in Spring, but it all depends on the colors you use as to what season it should be named. As I was writing the pattern, I created a different setting using different colors so that quilt became Fireworks in Winter.

So here is a preview of the quilt I've been working over the weekend. It is almost complete with only some quilting to finish off and if it had not been for the interruption, I would have finished it! It has taken me just 2.5 days to complete so a perfect weekend project.
