Dear Baby Jane and Roses...

I started a Dear Baby Jane quilt late last year and have just finished my 6th block. This block is called Bachelor's Buttons (B1). It was my first effort at reverse applique. It sewed together much better than I thought it would.
Living away from my garden for 12 months is hard so it was great to be among the roses again with a visit to Woolmer's Estate to see the National Rose Garden. I couldn't find a name for the David Austin rose pictured so any help with this would be appreciated. David Austin roses are my favourite roses!

That is a gorgeous rose, can't help with names, I just appreciate the flowers in other peoples gardens. Cute block - love the red.

Well done on the reverse applique, it can be a bit tricky can't it?
I visited Woolmer's Rose Garden last year, the smell was divine! Your photos brought back lovely memories for me.
