    Beautiful block Sulabug! The colors are so bright, I love it!

    Joejoe, your block looks great too! Sure it's close to right, there's no quilt police here I love the purple colors!

    Where is the pattern. I didn't find a post for it. Never mind. Just found it. LOL. I like this and so many possibilities. I can't wait to see what everyone does with this one. I like the three that are done so far.

    Here is my May BOM block....I reduced the measurements of the pattern to make it 8 X 8 then using postage stamp squares I tipped the corners of the petals and then set the 8" square on point.

    I really like the clipped corners. I almost forgot to look for the new block today. I will start this weekend.

    joejoe31......What a pretty color combination for your block. I think you can make it just the way it is, it looks great to me!! It is so much fun seeing how everyone ends up making their block for the month. Each one is so individual & I Love that. No need to be a member, as everyone is welcome at any time. Thank you for sharing.

    I love how you changed the block so it looks more like a flower. You're very creative!

    Linda....... my your "Oh Suzanna" block is just darling!! I love the circle right in the center of your block. I can't tell, but is it a doily or applique on there? It really adds to your block. Your fabric's & color's are really great too. Thank you for sharing with all of us today.

    BettyB..........what a wonderful block you have made, too. I love the color's you chose, they remind me of an old fashioned piece of candy & I can't think of the name of it!! They say the mind is the first thing to go!! Thank you so much for sharing with all of us today & for not dragging your feet for to long!!

    Thank you! The flower in the center is applique (blanket stitch). I used white thread on white fabric - halfway through I wished I had used a different color thread, but now that it is done, I think I like it!

    Lovely blocks. Sulabug does BettyB's block remind you of that 3 color coconut candy, I think Brach's made? Was it called neopolitan coconut?
