Hello, friends! Today I’m sharing the Quilt Block of the Month August 2023. This is the eighth block in the series, and we will have four more blocks along with an additional block that will be used in the settings I’ll share in December.
Quilt Block of the Month August 2023
August Block Details
First, I used two different backgrounds for both my small and large blocks this time. In the small block I combined the tone on tone with the daisies on white and accented with the red stripe, red leaf print, and large floral on green. My large block is quite a bit busier with the plaid on white and the multi-colored floral as backgrounds. The daisy prints in red and green and the green polka dots rounded out my fabric choices for the large block.
Additionally, the piecing this month is simple: four patches and half-square triangles are set together reminiscent of our first block in the series.
