Punch Needle Quilt: Block 6 finished

I finished another punch needle quilt block...don't you think I work fast? LOL! This block was partially completed last summer-I had done the flower but I had run out of the green pearl cotton so it languished all winter!There are now 6 completed blocks and I'm really liking how they all look together on my design wall. This looks like a lot of red but it really isn't. Two of the blocks have the variegated thread, one a hot pink and only the one is truly red.
I've posted a punch needle tutorial here if you'd like to try this. Its fun, its fast and it's an easy take-along-to-the-pool summer project.Best of all, it looks like nothing else with its unique texture!

I'm linking to Design Wall Monday at Patchwork Times(I know, I'm so poky!), Finished for Friday at Lit and Laundry and Sew and Tell at AmyLouWho (now I'm an early bird so the links will go up tomorrow!:). Stop by and see all the wonderful projects everyone has going!

I don't believe I have seen a punch needle quilt before but this is going to be just an eye catcher!

Your punch needle blocks are gorgeous, Miri! I hear you on the "poky" business. I think P. stands for it lately, in my case.

These are turning out so cool! What a great way to reproduce antique quilts.

So pretty and so cool! I might need to steal this quilt when you're all finished and not looking. :)
