Second Block Finished

I have completed the second block which is the one, I think with the most leaves. Could be wrong. I have also put the feet on my bird from the first block. I am starting on my third block which will be the one with the Strawberries. Much simpler to do so far. I haven't cut out the tops to the strawberries yet, I may wait and make a few and if they're hard to do I'll make them in ultrasuede like the birds purple feet in my first block.


  1. Lovely bird, and such pretty minty greens, well done.

  2. Lovely block Mari, there are lots and lots of leaves in this quilt aren't there..

  3. Beautiful colors in your quilt. I love the purple feet. Yea Ultrasuede! I am a huge fan of ultrasuede.

    Happy Stitching,

  4. Your block looks beautiful! Your greens are so fun and happy.

  5. Very nice blocks, beautiful greens, I love the birds feet. I'm doing the strawberries block and having trouble with the tops. I think it is a good idea to use ultrasuede

  6. I never would have thought of your color choices, but I LOVE them! Wow! Breathtaking! I could keep going...

  7. I just love the fabrics you used for both blocks...very fresh and cheerful! Well done! I like the way you fussy cut the flowers.

    In stitches,
    Teresa :o)

  8. Mari, wonderful blocks. I just love your color choices. The fussy cut flowers are to die for. Such lovely colors and prints. This quilt is going to be beautiful. All of the blocks work so well together. Job well done!


  9. Your blocks are very appealing; the colours are very unique and I particularly like the greens used in the leaves....
