Shabby Roses and Lavender

This is the 4th lot of lavender that I have cut , This box is deep ,there is a lot of lavender here . I would say I have about another 3 or possibly 4 boxes to cut

This is the shabby roses quilt I have been working on
The pattern was on the blog of
Jenny of Elefantz , you will find her on my sidebar . Jenny puts out free patterns, this is one of her free gifts .
I,m showing it as whole and also in two seperate halves . It is quilted but it doesn,t have the binding on yet

I have put the two title blocks in the centre .
It was an absolute joy to do , it involved applique and embroidery , patchwork and quilting . I shall bind it later in the week (hopefully)

It looks absolutely beautiful and I love the colourway. I don't know how you find the time to do such an amount of intricate work - do you never sleep?
Well done, it's a treasure.

What are you going to do with all that lovely lavender - make a lavender pillow perhaps?

Lavender is one of those plants that come into my garden to die. Each year I try, I have one in a pot this year, but it's just hanging on, not really happy and I will have to buy lavender to make sachets this fall.

as always, your quilt is beautiful.
I have so much lavender I'm finding it hard to find places to dry it!
