    Ok ... Ok ... I'll Rake Tomorrow

    today, i was determined to complete this.
    it's a table topper.
    about 28" square.

    the block was one of the projects we did at our guild's recent weekend retreat.

    forgive the wrinkles. it's fresh out of the washer.
    it is square. i now have it pinned to the ironing board to block it.

    Wonderful. I like the way the gold and green are used.

    It turned out great! The yellow and green parts remind me of the Carolina Lily pattern? I love your Stack & whack block and it makes a super center for your table topper.

    Beautiful, great colors too.
    As for the leaves, rake into a low pile and run over them several times with the mower. The will be chopped up and not so noticeable.

    Very nice...I like the fabrics too.
