Mary's Block 5

Block 5

To me, this looked more like a folk art block.  There's something about the shape of the pot and the funky buds that just looked more folk art so I chose to make my stems thicker for block 5. 

I ordered an extension table for my Bernina that I picked up this morning so now I'm going to mark, baste, and attempt to machine quilt the top I made last month so it may be a while before I get to block 6.  Or I may work on it in the evening.  I'll just have to see what mood I'm in.

  1. I think you're right. It does look folk art. I like how you've fussy cut the buds/cherries. You are moving along quickly. Well done.

  3. I love the blue. How funny, I used the same print for the pot trim but a different color on my block. I think the pot is red and the trim is green. I really like the red paisley flowers. I keep thinking it needs more flowers as I'm working on mine, but maybe not.
