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.
Last week I happened to be in our local craft store and found some oval hoops so I decided to grab a couple and start designing - of course, flowers came to mind.
It just occurred to me that I missed a post for October's flower! Fortunately, I have made this flower in my BOW flower series. It was one of the early flowers, the marigold.
The flower for August is Gladiolus - such a beautiful flower in so many colors. When I made my collection of flowers, I definitely included a gladys as we often call them, but this week I decided to make a second block using pink instead of my original red.
It was a wonderful refreshing sight when I saw this beautiful quilt arrive in my inbox. Joanne from Armstrong, BC, Canada had recently purchased my pattern "Color Connections" and wanted to share a photo of her finished quilt.
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.
What's under the needle this week? I've been playing with a new art quilt and having lots of fun. Check out the following photos...

This year my goal is to do more quilting... a lot more quilting. As always, I have lots of quilt ideas floating around in my head, most of them involve applique... and I know I need to get them out. I've already made a start by creating my new Morning Glory block. Originally designed for my BOM Spring Life program, I rearranged it to create a whole new design and of course, I now have this available on my website: Morning Glory design.
