Shenandoah Valley Botanical Quilt - Touch Me Not (Red)

Happy June my friends!

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 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 June, Touch Me Not (Red):

Beautiful block. I'm a couple of other quilters that are making this quilt. It is interesting to see similar blocks but in different fabrics and colors. All are very nice in their own way.

Another beautiful block!
I too love your choices of wool for this one.
Lots of lovely tiny piecework!
