Viola and Lily of the Valley PosyThese posies contain violas and lily of the value and join with the bluebirds to surround the center of the quilt. Outside of this ring will be a tree-of-life type design with a variety of flowers and birds. I used permanent fabric markers to make the lines on the violas, and crayons to add the touch of color to the light petals of the flowers. I stitched the units together before stitching them to the background.
There are eight of these along with the eight bluebirds. Next week, I'll have a picture of the center of the quilt.
