Good thing there are 31 days in May! I needed all 31 days to finish this tutorial before the
deadline end of the month!
If YOUR birthday is in May–Happy (belated) Birthday!
A RETURN TO HAPPINESS
Lily of the Valley is YOUR birthday flower!
How lucky for YOU! I LOVE everything about this pretty little flower–from the shape of the leaves, the nodding flowers and the scent! Lilies of the Valley represent humility, purity and is said to bring luck in love. This beautiful bouquet flower also means a “return to happiness”.
It’s a perfect flower for YOUR next quilt. If your birthday is in May, perhaps you could add a single Lily to each of your quilts as your hidden signature?
LILY OF THE VALLEY MACHINE QUILTING TUTORIAL
Begin by drawing two parallel lines. Begin stitching in between the two lines. Start with a curlicue knot and sweep to the left sideline. Stitch on the left side line for several stitches.
Sweep to the right sideline to begin the next Lily in the border.
With a little doodling, this motif could be transformed into an allover motif–give it a try!
May all YOUR quilts be completed weeks before the deadline!
