Good Morning, Quilters!
Violets are the Flower of the Month. (Read more HERE) They represent humility, faithfulness, love and modesty.
Humble though it may be, the Violet looks charming on any quilt. Use a single Violet in the center of a block or stitch a vine of Violets and Heart Leaves to add love to any border…
THE VIOLET MACHINE QUILTING TUTORIAL
Begin by stitching a short, curvy vine. Add two small loops to the left.
Add two more small loops to the right.
Notice that all of the loops come together at the center. You may have a build up of threads here–creating a focal point. In this case, at the center of a flower, the focal point is appropriate and adds to the dimension of the motif.
Add a large petal to the left–stopping just short of the center of the flower.Then add a large petal to the right…again stopping short of the middle of the flower.
Add two smaller petals on the right side of the “stem”.
Add the final petal on the left side of the “stem”. Stitch through the center of the Violet to begin the next motif in the design.
NOTE–You can stitch through any of the petals to begin the next motif–It may be more convenient to stitch through the side of the Violet if you are using the flower in an allover or background design.
I like to combine the Violet with the Heart Leaf.
Sugar is Sweet and…
So are YOU!
