Here is the May (#5) Block of the Month from Sue Spargo. I just have the pieces pinned onto the background and am ready to start the applique. On the lower right are the Valdani pearl cotton threads that are to be used in this block. The fuchsia fabric in the center is hand dyed velvet while the stripped and leaf fabric are cotton. The rest of the block is Sue's hand dyed wool. The Valdani and Silken Pearl that will be used in this block are all provided in the kit. You can see then the Green Leaves Silken Pearl from The Thread Gatherer in the lower left corner of the bag.
