T is for Tall (Photo Heavy)

 Tall Year Squared by Betsy Morgan is my big finish of the year. Thanks Diane S. and Mary D. for all your help and encouragement.
 Summer panel
 Fall panel.
 Winter panel.
 Spring panel.
 Lid.
Etui open with scissors fob and pin cube.
Several things I would like to mention if you are thinking about this piece. First, I would stitch on one piece of linen paying attention to the direction of the fabric. Having all the different colors is fun, but the construction would have been better with just one linen piece. Secondly, I would have used mat board instead of pellon to make the box. It is just too wobbly and so the panels bow and the lid does not stay on.
Thank you  Inspirations   
It was from their Issue 93.

Ah yes, the laundry list of what you'd do differently next time. I do that, too. But it looks goregous to me.

What a lot of work, but it looks lovely.

It's a stunning piece and does look lovely with the different coloured linens.

I agree about the mat board. My Just Nan triangular house does the same thing because the sides are soft.
