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 Block 2, Blue Flag or Iris...
So fun to select the threads to applique these, in this case I used some wool Aurifil. The blue wool I used is from a piece my friend Marie dyed for me...maybe not true to life Iris color but I love it :)
And here are the blocks I've made so far, we were to make 3 of the first pineapple block but I chose to make 4 as I am changing the layout slightly.
