Thanks to Jane and Mdm Samm for allowing me the pleasure of being part of this hop! The full master schedule can be found at Jane's blog or look at the bottom of my post today...
My block is a firecracker in honor of the fact that we have a burn ban in our area this year due to severe drought so this is the only one we are likely to see tonight.
Below you can see it in all it's 10 1/2" unfinished glory...
Here is a pictoral description of what I did if you care to replicate it in some fashion...
Embroidering the phrase and cutting the block down to 10 1/2".
I couldn't resist finishing it with a stitch in the ditch simple quilting design and placing it in the frame we used for the last hop so here is the finished table topper. Whew! Do my posies look dry or what? And this was not too long after the 1.5" drenching we got from Friday night's storm. It sure has been dry around here lately. But I am through complaining as we spent 2 1/2 days without power and still have friends and family without power today. We sure had quite a whopper of a storm.
Be sure to visit the other blogs "on" for today and through the rest of the hop!
