    Now, I personally LOVE the smell of marigolds because it’s so distinctive and it brings back a WHOOSH of childhood memories. I planted them in the flower beds with my mom when I was a little girl in Minnesota, or maybe she was planting the marigolds and I was playing with my Barbie dolls in the grass next to the flower beds. But when I smell those flowers, I get transported back to that moment in time so many decades ago. I love your cheddar orange block, and all of your blocks are looking lovely together!

    That red/orange sure is a lovely color. Your blocks look great together and to think you only have 4 more! The eight you have completed look so modern together. Love!

    I put marigolds in to keep the white fly away from beans and tomatoes. They obviously have many uses! The orange block looks great and all the blocks are looking very pretty.

    Very nice block and I especially love seeing all the blocks together! It’s been a couple decades since I planted marigolds. This year I put one in a pot and it is gorgeous. I’m with you on the beauty makes up for the smell!

  7. Roseanne — your blocks are coming along nicely and play together so well! I love the modern log cabin cross block — it’s one of my favorites!

  8. Love those bright happy blocks! I’m looking forward to putting this quilt together too. Hubs thinks mine is psychedelic. Hahaha. Pretty sure that the quilt will be mine if I keep it. It definitely won’t be going on our bed 😉

  9. These colorful blocks are looking great! How big will the finished quilt be? Have a great day! Mary
