Helen's log cabin blocks, and Dearest Boy block!!





Here is my latest Dearest Boy block!!  I really enjoyed adding the embroidered stems and even thorns on the stems.  Great fun!  This block reminded me of Mom...she had a wonderful green thumb, and had flowers you would not believe, including many varieties of rose!!  Glorious!!


Please see all these quilters, who are making blocks for this quilt!!

I love all the blocks you've shared, and I've tried to resist. But, alas, I had to order the pattern! Thank you for the inspiration.

So pretty! I enlarged it to see all of the details. Great job!
Helen's blocks are great scrappy log cabin creations! :)

Love your rose block! Great fabric choices. I've just been pruning our roses and am now sporting a bandage on each thumb from the thorns - I need new gardening gloves :D

A sweet block with a sweet memory.

Me...no green thumb except when I do applique flowers. Your rose block has a lighter look to it than mine. Pretty fabrics.
