Dearest Boy, Sally Post and a Flower Bouquet

It's that time of the month when we reveal the next Dearest Boy block.  I think that we all agree that this month's block is difficult.  How difficult you ask?  So difficult that I did a different block.

If you look at the photo of the quilt this months block is seen under the cow.  The block is called oak tree and we were to make 2 of them.  I want to enjoy quilting and this block wasn't going to do it for me.

Here are the blocks I made.  Pine trees.

Not the most beautiful of blocks but I like them.

Be sure to stop by Karen'sJulie's and Carole's blogs to see what they came up with.

I finished another Sally Post block.

This is block 19 of 36.  Too many blocks needed to make to be able to finish this quilt in a month.  So whenever I have a little extra time.  I haven't trimmed this block yet.

Wednesday Pat Sloan posted the next block for her Flower Bouquet Block of the Week.

This week there were 2 blocks.  This completes the bottom left of the quilt and we are now three quarters of the way done.

And the final project I leave you with is my March/April Mini quilt.  I call it March/April because I don't think I will have time to make a mini this month.

I think this is my favorite mini/doll quilt I have made to date.

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you found something you liked.

Hugs, Cathy

Oh yes, I can understand why you chose another block. Wow. Your replacement will work perfectly in their place.

We have each chosen a different block of some sort to replace the oak tree pattern. Interesting difference in our choice of what to replace the oak tree block with.

You are moving along well with Sally Post blocks. I know you will be a happy camper to get the blocks done.

Oh wow! I love that mini so much! And March/April is just fine with me! I will link this post up when I post mine at the end of the month. It appears that all of you changed that tree block! I love everyone's renditions. I'm having fun watching all the progress.

I love that you all did different trees instead of the original- which looks pretty crazy!

Teresa said...

I like your tree blocks. Seeing the others, looks like the tree block will be all your signature block - each a different pattern. Makes me wish I had gotten in on the quilt-a-long.

Looking great on your version of trees. what a shame. Wonder if the Designer made the quilt herself or just drew it out and published it! All of you ladies are doing a great job in making a new block that pleases you! Hugs

Took a closer look at the pattern! Those are quadrants from a Lone Star Block - all probably cut on a 45 degree and one must really have the right ruler and tools to make them. Pretty, but technically a nightmare! Smart move!

Hi you have a lovely blog! You jogged my memory though with the quilt at the top of your page. I made that quilt also, a very long time ago and had forgotten!!! Do you remember who's pattern it was? Happy stitching. Lisa

I really like the trees in the pattern, but I wouldn't want to make one either--crazy! Your substitute blocks will look great!

Substituting a different block is a way of avoiding frustration or giving up completely. Great job!
