    I don't remember the name of the site but you can google it. There is at least one but I'm sure many who if you send them a photo they will convert it to an embroidery design. I love the lady slipper, I saw them when I was in MA. Good luck

    That takes me back to my childhood. I'd walk through the woods to get to the schoolbus and would see them every spring.

    Sorry I don't have a pattern.

    These beauties are very rare anymore. Lucky you if you have them in your area. The site with the quilt is really good or if you are ambitious make your own pattern with the great pics' you have. I would have them blown up at a printer, cut out the main parts and use them as templates. Which ever way you try, the finished quilt wil be grand.

    If you want to do appliques, you can Google "lady slipper coloring page", and use the image outline as a template.

    How about making an "art quilt" from your photo?

    Try looking for patterns for state flowers, since the showy lady's slipper is the state flower of Minnesota.

    I would enlarge your photo, put a piece of clear plastic over it and with a very fine sharpie draw the lines and changes in color. Do as much or as little detail as you want to stitch. Cover the plastic with white paper and enlarge to the final size that you want. There is your pattern!

    You could print the photo onto fabric and make that as part of your quilt. Maybe someone already said that...I didn't read all the posts.

    If you want to embroider the lady slipper design on a block or blocks, here is a link to the design at embroidery library:

    Take your photo and have it enlarged the size you want. Cut out the elements of the photo for your pattern. Good luck. Would love to see a future posting with your finished project.
    Keep smiling, it makes others wonder what you're up to!

    This one was sold, but you could google McKenna Ryan and find another.
