    QB Quilt block of the Month for August, 2013 photo's.

    Hello Everyone.

    Here is a picture of the block that I made for August 2013. I really liked this pattern Tallahassee & was able to feature my floral theme with the pink & purple background. I am so anxious to know how everyone likes the pattern & to see how your blocks turn out. Good Luck everyone & don't forget to post your photo's, when you block is completed. We all love Show & Tell!!

    Very pretty. I'll take a big gulp, cross my fingers, and try to sew it. I've got a month to get it right

    Jaba, I looked at the instructions you don't have to paper piece there are templates also. I think I might go that route, I don't mind PP but prefer larger pieces. I'm going to try my first stack and whack on this one using templates.

    I saw that too dedemac, let out a big sigh of relief here. Stack and whack would be beautiful, can't do that with my fabric but sure want to see yours when you finish.

    Oh boy I am working out side my box of comfort zone, but I do like the block, it reminds me of a flower! I think I will try the paper piece!
    Give a smile away today, someone you meet might need one!

    WOW.............it is beautiful & you have done a wonderful job using the colors that you have selected for all of your blocks. I really like it & you made it look different than mine, by placing your color's like you did. I love it. I knew you could do it!! Thank you so much for sharing.

    Now I see the pic and it looks as though I need to "fix" that little 4 square in the middle. Think that seam better match a little better than it does. Tomorrow....or it will drive me nuts now that I know it's there. D--- pics they just show everything don't they?

    Green eggs & spam, anyone? I'm continuing with my black/white/green fabrics I collected on vacation last year. This pattern was a challenge to find fabrics left that would show the actual shapes...BUT.... it's best feature?? It measures exactly 12" square Name:  thimble aug 2013 Quiltboard001_edited (Small).JPG

    I'm continuing on with my Black/white/yellow and green. And I agree, I wouldn't want to make a big quilt, but this size is perfect. Katie

    Yours is beautiful & calm compared to my "in your face" version, but mine is playing nicely with the others so far.

    I have one of those, and when I lay out the blocks, it on the side and I have a couple calmer ones top bottom and other side. And it works great.
