Shenandoah Valley Botanical Quilt - August Yellow Tulip

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 (8 1/2" finished), many are enlarging the pattern and all the participant's resulting blocks are well worth a look...so pretty!

This is my version of the block for August, labelled Yellow Tulip:

 And here are the blocks arranged together so far...

 Now I need to go give this guy, Buddy, and his partner in crime Sam a bit of company outside in this 90 degree heat, they are much more into running and jumping than I am though...thanks for stopping by!!

It's a beautiful block and they look so pretty together! You are doing a lovely job with them. The flowerbed is beautiful. How did you ever manage to keep the pups out of there? :)
