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.
