A Couple more Secret Blocks

Here are a couple more secret blocks I made.  They were challenging, but I'm so glad I made them.  Applique and paper-piecing were practiced. 
This went together fast with machine applique and Zena Thorpe's method of using a cut out of the pattern for placing.  Thinking it will make a great pillow.  This is #207 - Pretty Bird by Marian Mapes
And then there is:
Annabelle Rae by Mickey Charleston, # 231.  I think this would make a wonderful medallion flower with 4 of them sewn together as a 24" square.

I'm giving away a collector's edition of  v. 3.  Just leave a comment,  follow, or both to have 2 chances to win the issue.  Closes May 7th at 8 AM.

I just love the bird of paradise was it very difficult to do?

The bird of paradise is inspiring, but my favourite is the sun with its beautiful hue of oranges!
These are gorgeous! More and more I'm wanting to try paper piecing.
