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!
