Seasons in Ontario Crazy Quilt

These blocks will form part of a 'Seasons in Ontario' themed crazy quilt.  Not liking the placement of the central embroidery on the autumn block, nor am I keen on the seam treatments I started adding. I think I'll re-stitch this block.

Autumn block with embroidered dry thistles:

Summer block with appliqued trilliums:

 Where does the time go???  I've hardly stitched for months and I miss it.

Hello Maria, in answer to your question....I used a size 18 chenille needle for KWAN TUNG.
Also to get a lovely sheen on your floss, I used a 'TROLLY NEEDLE TOOL' which smoothes the strands of thread as you take the needle down into the fabric ! Hope this helps....
Lovely blocks that you've made
