I'm undecided about the red and white seedpods (or are they flowers/buds or leaves??) I admired the red and white that Mona used for these shapes and thought I'd give it a try. I'm not going to applique the little white oval shapes on them until I've decided what to do. I have set it aside to think about and have started on block #11.
Each block I've tried so far has presented different applique challenges. I'm loving it so far and have to confess that my other quilting projects are suffering neglect. :0)
