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.
