Flower of the Month: September

September’s flower is here, even though it’s a bit late! For the seventh installment of the flower of the month series, I humbly present the aster. The patterns from the series are from Ellen Maurer-Stroh, who has some great free patterns.

The aster is an ornamental plant that grows in Europe, the United States, and Canada. These asters are light purple, but the blooms can also be pink, dark purple, and nearly white. They grow best in cooler climates.

Like the other squares, I added the month name in the border (with DMC 936), using the chart I posted.

The stitching is done in two strands on 18 count antique white aida cloth.

Next month: the calendula.
