Stems and leaves went on quickly, but then there were the layered flowers. Oh boy! I did add more greens to my stash, so they are incorporated in this block, too.
What a difference making a flower. You make a leaf and sew it on and then the space it filled.
But, when it came to the flowers, it seemed like you sewed and sewed and sewed and then once the flower was done, you only filled one little space.
So, the flowers were much more time consuming. Then....
there was the bird. Hmph! I did not enjoy sewing him down. Too many tiny crooks and crannies, but he is done and not as perfectly as he should have or could have been done. Never know....he might just fly away one of these days. Not sure anyone would miss him.
But I do have to say the block turned out pretty good overall and again, I have time to spare, so I am going to look for the next UFO to work on BEFORE the next block becomes available.

The pattern for block #6 was posted a couple days early, but I waited until I had my Painted Daisy quilt and the toile quilt all ready for the quilter. Tops are done and backing and batting are sewn and cut out respectively.
I have the pattern printed and transferred to a master sheet for placement and just chose all my fabrics for each piece of the pattern. There are a lot of pieces to this block.
I am in the process of cutting out each piece.
Next step will be to use a chalk pencil to draw the seam lines and then place each piece onto the background. I am excited to work on each block and then anxious for the next one; but for now....it's time to get to stitching.
Happy stitching everyone!

This quilt came about when I was going through my stash (trying to destash, actually) and I came across a layer cake. I did some research...
