I have a thing for dogwoods. They are one of my favorite flowering sights in spring. They are also the state flower of the state where I was born (Virginia) and the state where I live (North Carolina). So I sometimes buy things with dogwoods. I bought a pattern for a wall hanging at the Statesville Needle Arts Expo in January 2011. That's right, I bought the pattern 4 years ago and just finished it last weekend. I'm not sure when I actually started working on it, but it sat idle for a while. It is half finished no longer!
This is my first time adding beaded embellishments to a quilt. I also used Spectrum Noir markers to give detail to the dogwood petals. Here is a detail shot of one of the petals.
The pattern is Dogwood from the Floral Fling series by The Overall Quilter.
This is a Quarter 1 finish for the Finish Along, hosted by On the Windy Side
