I finally finished my Prairie Schooler 4 season block. the first picture shows all 6 sides stitched, and ready for assembly. the bottom picture is the finished product. These were the Four seasons found in last year's issues of Just Cross Stitch, and the small end squares are past freebies. I stitched them on 18 count Aida,and stuffed with matress foam. This came out mostly how i envisioned it , my corners are a bit rough... it is a challenge to not bulk up the corners withe excess fabric but yet not cut too much away and cause fraying.

I am not sure what I will do with it, maybe a show pin cushion.

Updated: Hmmmm cubes must be in the air. Abi posted one too. I have never played Portal, but she put her cube together the same way I did, but I used a ladder stitch in stead of a whip stitch to connect my sides. and i used Heatnbond instead of interfacing.

Ooh! I love your finish! Congratulations. I agree that these boxes are a bit of a pain to put together, but the results are worth it.

Wonderful! I'd never get mine to look square so I'll forgive you any "rough" corners! :)

I love what you did. It is so pretty. I have the PS 4 pieces stitched from JCS magazine as well, now you just give me the new ideas.
