Today I present the very last of the flowers of the month: the violet! The patterns from the series are from Ellen Maurer-Stroh, who has some great free patterns.
Violets usually flower in the spring. Even though they are usually violet-colored, the flowers can also be blue, white, and yellow colored. Violet flowers are used for scent for perfumes, flavoring for liqueurs and candies, and are sometimes candied with sugar for decorations for desserts.

The stitching is done in two strands on 18 count antique white aida cloth.
This makes the last installment in the flower of the month series. Here’s how they all look together:
