Big, beautiful blooms

As you can imagine, there still hasn’t been a tonne of time for stitching. But the other afternoon, Burton not so subtly insisted I get my butt in the studio and do some sewing.

One must always obey Lord Burton, so I used it as an opportunity to get the August flower blocks out of the way. This month’s block gave me another chance to practice my quarter square triangles, and I’m definitely seeing an improvement.

They are a little fussy to make, but not too bad. And once they were together, the rest of the blocks went together pretty smoothly.

This pair fit in quite nicely with the rest of the garden so far.

There’s only two blocks left to make – but the pattern won’t be released until mid-September, so my next sewing session will have to focus on something else. Hopefully it’s sooner, rather than later.

    Burton is quite the task master! It’s been a while since he was able to roll on your sewing projects!

    Your flowers for the quilt are beautiful! Can’t wait to see when finished.

    Your quarter square triangles look perfect! Those blocks are just awesome. Such happy flowers and that is going to be a stunner of a quilt.
