August blocks from Finland

 I am on early in this month...
both blocks are stitched and even pieced together!

Do you feel THE feeling, which I felt when I ALSO got these pretty things together...
I have seen many beautiful tops and finished TIS quilts here, 
that I was so inspired with my own blocks and it was easy to keep the schedule;)

Now there is border blocks ahead... Yes, you read totally right... blocks;)
I'm planning to make a bit different borders to my version.
Hopefully I'll succeed with them...

I like how it all came together....I like the schedule, too, it would be overwhelming to try and do it all at once but stretching it out over all the months is enjoyable.
