Quilted Wild Roses & a State Park

How about some sweet batik wild roses? This piece measures 15" x 20"...and it even looks good turned in any direction!
The centers of the flowers are are gold color embroidey floss.
I am incredibly embaressed to say I am still trying to find the pattern I made this from. She's a Canadian designer...that much I know! When I was in Banff & Jasper two years ago I got this pattern and admired the red maple leaf that marks it as being from a Canadian designer. That would be a great marketing idea for any local!
NOTE (10/16/08): I finally found the pattern! "Wild Roses" by designer Castilleja Cotton in Calgary, Canada.

So...leave me a comment to celebrate the upcoming 1st anniversary of Patchwork Pie, and your name will go in a drawing to win this cutie.
If you don't know what to say, just tell me what you are working on right now. I always love to hear about what people are making.

OH!'s the Carillon (belltower) at Stephen Foster State Park in White Springs, FL!
That must mean it's time to get ready for another quilt show at the park, literally down upon the Suwannee River.
I'll be over there for several days next week helping to get the show hung, giving a couple lectures, and generally enjoying one of the prettiest spots in Florida. This time I get to stay in a cabin right inside the park...and hear all the Stephen Foster songs that carillon will play!
This is a great show that has every kind of quilt imaginable. I don't know if I can get any WI-FI there, but I'll be sure to post some pics at some point!
