SALLY POST BLOCKS FOR JUNE

I made it!  The three Sally Post quilt blocks for June are done.
The block with the yellow flower was not the easiest to stitch because of the thin petals.  I did not look forward to that part of the block.  I cut the flower shape in one piece and just stitched slowly.  I can't say that it is my best work but will do.

A third try to order sashing fabric online and this is what I have ended up with. A medium reproduction pink.  The first pink I ordered ended up to be too strong of a pink.  The second way too light.  I am going with the third one.

Have a wonderful Sunday!

They look great Karen! I could not get those petals rounded so I ended up cutting 1/4" strips and turning the ends under! I like your sashing fabric. It's one of the fabrics I'm using in my quilt!!

Yay! Love your blocks and I think third time is a charm on the pink fabric!!

Great blocks! Well done on that spikey yellow flower!

I love your sashing fabric. I think I have some of it here that I have been using on my Trailing Vines leaves.

Congrats on meeting the goal. I am loving the Sally Post blocks. Nice that you finally found an acceptable pink. It is such a challenge to choose colors via the internet.

I have some of that red you used for background and that is a lovely color. Great choice for your sashing too! Love that chunky applique block. Very special looking.

They are great blocks Karen. I specially like the yellow one. The petals in that are so thin it must have been difficult to cut out even before you got to the stitching.

Your blocks are beautiful... love he one with the yellow flower !
I also want to make this one, but first I will start with the LE from Esther Aliu.
