Linda Brannock calls this block "Stocks." There are several flowers with long stems and circular flowers: stocks, gladiolus, and snapdragons. From a distance I think they look similar but the color ranges are different for each.
Linda's flowers are stocks but I chose to stitch snapdragons simply because I liked the color range for the snaps more than the other flowers. And this block needed to have flowers in the coral range of colors.
So here I am with five days to go to finish this block. I have the little "table" at the bottom and the lower edges and bottom of the vase to stitch. I think I can finish by December 31 to meet my One Monthly Goal.
I don't generally keep up with such news as colors of the year but the announcement that Pantone's Color of the Year 2019 is Living Coral caught my eye. This color range has been one of my favorites off and on for decades.
I have a nice stack of fabrics in these colors so perhaps a "Living Coral" quilt is in my future this year. Anyone else like this color?
I hope you had a great Christmas (if you celebrate it). Our older daughter and her family came to spend Christmas with us. Our home seemed busy and full with four little ones ages 6 and under. They left this morning and today I'm taking it easy! Our younger daughter will be home tomorrow for a few days and our older daughter and family will return for the weekend. I love these family times. Not that I'm expecting to die soon but at my age one can never take time with family for granted. I want to spend every moment possible enjoying my daughters and these delightful little beings.
