Cornucopia of Thanks - month 3

I've been working on a block of the month with an online group.  Our aim is to finish Cornucopia of Thanks from Jennifer Chiaverini's new quilt book Traditions from Elm Creek.  So far, the blocks have been mighty difficult, so I hope next month's is easy.  Yesterday, amid the heat and humidity, I slaved over "Prosperity."
The "Y" seams were tough and I almost wished I had done them by hand.  But it turned out pretty good.  The colors don't show well here - the "red" is really a lipstick hot pink.

I am planning to make this a queen-sized quilt, so I made a few more blocks over the last few weeks.  Two came from various issues of Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks.  It's going to be colorful!
