My Second Block

This block took me a long time to finish but I am happy with the results. I did not enjoy all the small flowers and don't think my stitches look as good as they should. I do like my polka dots and will be using them throughout the quilt. Overall my quilt will have a lot of red/pink because I tend to like stronger colors.

  1. No wonder it took you a long time--it's gorgeous! I love your vase and the polka dot trim-brilliant. Will you use those dots in every block? It's one of my favorites.
    Your colors work so well-I especially love that purple in the center. Well done!

  2. Love your block and like how you used your poka dots. I'm working on this one as I saved it for last because it has so many little pieces. I always put poka dots in each block plus some orange and yellow to give it some punch. Keep going, you are doing a great job.

  3. Your block looks great--congrats on finishing! I started this block too--going very slowly. I try to do a little flower each time I can sew, but that means it will be forever as there are so many as you know. (I think I have the same blue polka dots on mine too.) Your little pink birds are cute--look spunky as they hover there.
