Shenandoah Valley Botanical Quilt - January 2017

Happy New Year!!  This is a project I am hoping to finish this year, my top is sewn but I am spacing out my block reveal to follow along with the sew-along.   I am hoping to get my top sandwiched and quilted this winter. 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 blocks chosen for January, Red and Pink Wreaths:



I love both of these blocks with all their details.

I am currently working through my WIP goals for this year (along with cleaning my very messy sewing room!!)  and this quilt is at the top of the list for 2017!!

I love your wool on cotton version of these blocks. I've been following Doreen for quite some time and always love seeing her work, too. This quilt is going to be so nice when you all finish it.
