Shenandoah Botanical Quilt - February Red Tulip Block

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 block chosen for February, Red Tulip:

 Sorry for the washed out photo, the weather has been too icky for outside photography, grey, wet and muddy...blech!
