I hated squash until about four years ago, but I love it now. I can't wait to get sewing on your sweet blocks! Thanks for sharing!

You are sew right with the Southwestern look of the Squash Blossom block and I love your colors. Squash has always been a favorite food of mine and your block looks delicious. Thank you for Hopping.

I like your squash blossom block. I saw the different blocks each month until June, when they seemed to disappear.

Love the squash blossom, and funny enough I have been working on a pattern for a large quilt using a squash blossom.
