All right, y’all - don’t cry! It’s just the onions…

Sniff, sniff, weep. Okay, now that we got that out of the way!

This was a fun one to use some of the creams that are a bit more floral-y, so they don’t end up in the Quilts of Valor scrap bin. Although there’s no real reason why they couldn’t - who’s really going to check if there’s a wee bit of flowers on that 2” square? So after I made this block, the cream scraps got dumped into the QOV bin.

Get the printer-friendly instructions here! The block will be free for a month until the next one posts - but don’t be too upset if you miss one. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Hopatong Community Garden, so you’ll be helping a great cause run by one of my good friends.

I’m using a variety of Kona browns for the background fabric this time. I also use the Quilt in a Day triangle ruler to trim my half square triangles.

And so… Did anyone else work on (or start) a BOM? Or a project broken into {slightly} more manageable monthly pieces? Or a few blocks for someone else’s charity project? Link up here or at What a Hoot!
