Shenandoah Valley Botanical Album Quilt - Tiger Lily

I am sewing along with the Shenandoah Valley Botanical Quilt project - the pattern is provided by the Virginia Quilt Museum and all pattern sales benefit the museum. Dawn, from Collector with a Needle, and Doreen, from Aunt Reen’s Place, are hosting a quiltalong for this quilt, here.

The pattern size as provided by the museum easily makes 9 inch blocks. I am doing mine in wool so that I can make that size, many are enlarging the pattern and all the participant's resulting blocks are worth a look...so pretty!

This is my version of the block labelled Tiger Lily...

I'm afraid that I have taken as much artistic license with this flower in color as the designer did with shape and it is a bit unrecognizable as a tiger lily but I adore it :)   In krislovesfabric world this is an ideal flower - I want this in my flowerbed please!

 I really wanted to take a group photo outdoors but unfortunately the wind won't abate and I got tired of chasing them about the yard so I went with another kitchen shot.  The colors are much better than this photo indicate-promise!  Hopefully I will have better luck next month as I should have a pretty set of nine then!!

They remind me of a cross between Easter Lilies and Day Lilies. Darn wind is relentless lately.
