I finished up the Flower Blocks for Green Tea and Sweet Beans. I made them my own way and I think it worked out just fine.
I appliqued my flower onto the background. The directions were to add pieces to the flower to square it up. I thought this method was so much easier! And more accurate too.
I didn't applique the stem. I sewed it between to pieces of the bottom fabric. I used freezer paper to make the correct shape to be sewn to the flower pieces.
I just sewed the two pieces together and then trimmed to finished size. Done!!
I have 3 blocks left to make to finish the body of this quilt. The border is a whole other story. It's full of applique. This top won't be done for awhile but I'm really enjoying it and that's what counts!
