Hello again, glad to see you are back for more. 
At the halfway mark we are welcoming in a flower with more than one common name. 
I know them as a cornflower, but their other name is batchelors button. 
This European native got it's name as they used to grow as weeds in the corn and wheat fields.
The dried flowers have medicinal qualities, treating everything from fever to menstrual disorders. 
I just love them for their intense colour. When you say something is "cornflower" blue, there is no mistaking it.

Here is this months' pattern

To help with the block layout, here are the colour guides and number guides





I hope you are enjoying seeing your blocks come together as much as I am. 
See you next month!
