I got out of work early last night and found some time to sit and sew. I decided to make the newest block of the month from 15 minutes play. I read through all the directions and started in to sewing. Cut out some reds/pinks/oranges/purples for my flower portion and rummaged through the scraps to see what I could use for the leaves. There were some greens and blues, but not in big enough strips so I just sewed them all together to make that 7 inch square that was needed. I cut out my background - going with the darkest gray on this one. Got the leaf elements done, made the stem and now it is time to square up and put this puppy together. Decided that it would be easier to make my squares with a 6 1/2" square ruler so I got it out, cut all the squares the same size, sewed it together and it went together like a dream. One of the easiest blocks to make.
I was happy with the look - even though the stripes on the leaves are going differently than what I wanted, it was still okay. I put it on the wall with the other blocks and . . .
