This is the final result for my August block!  A very large learning curve on this one!  As you can see, it doesn't look much like my original design idea!  Interestingly, they seldom turn out the way I might have planned as I just start stitching.  That butterfly is going to work on one of my blocks for sure.  Next, September and October....
A reminder of how I started out.
Wishing all my fellow Canadians a Happy Thanksgiving.  I will not be returning until later next week as I'll be feasting on turkey and perhaps a pumpkin pie!


  1. What a beauty! Even if it did not turn out as you had planned...it had a mind of it's own and is beautiful!

  2. Gorgeous!!!!! Each time you make a block they outdo the last - I love the colors, the dimension and the variety of techniques you bring everytime!

  3. Your completed block is stunning. Blessings and Happy Canadian Thanksgiving...

  4. Another lovely creation. I am inspired to get out needles and threads. There just doesn't seem to be enough time to do everything, work, home caring, cooking and baking, gardening, needleworking.

    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

  5. I think you have also solved the "branch problem".
    A huge fantastic flower spray. I have a question though. Why did you remove the whole button cluster?
    Was it too heavy? I feel that the branch with lovely leaves is too light. Sorry for being critical.
    Happy Thanksgiving!

  6. Gorgeous work! You inspire me to pick up a needle and stitch!

  7. Hi Lorraine this CQ square now finished is so very beautiful - you have spent so many hours on this I can see! I love that bunch of cascading roses and flowers in the prettiest of colours in the corner.
    Gorgeous work and I admire you for your persistence.
    Have a great week,
    Hugs dear friend,

  8. Such a beautiful block! It doesn't matter what the original plan was - it was obviously a great jumping off point for your creativity!


I so appreciate the time you have taken to leave a comment. Thank you!
