Another block finished

I put on the last flower today, pressed, trim to correct size and cut out the back area.  This block is made like the original quilt not like the block from Threadbear's pattern.  I put in the funny shaped leaves coming out of the bowl and fussy cut the bowl from reproduction column fabric to get the eagle.  This is my blue flowers block and cut out several more blue flowers to go in the top border.  I've also made my blocks square, 14" instead of retangle like her pattern, so I widen out each block which is easy to do.  I have already pinned on the dog in my next block.  I stay up late every night and watch TV while I applique, thats why I get so much done...
