Greenpiece: Applique blocks 14 & 15

Here are a couple more applique blocks from the Moda Greenpiece BOM I'm participating in at my local quilt shop.

I actually really like these little flowers. It is such a pretty design. And once again, I sing the praises of Karen Kay Buckley's Perfect Circles... my circles are sooo much better looking these days!

Applique block 15:

A happy little bird. The beak caused me some trouble, and I'm not thrilled with it. I really need to work on sharp, narrow points and getting them to be cleaner looking (and sharp!). Not sure how to go about it though. Any suggestions?


  1. These are so pretty! I wish I knew what to say about the bird's beak, but your applique skills are miles beyond what I know how to do.

  2. Your blocks are great!

    I bought those Perfect Circles and plan to use them soon. Hopefully they will come out as good as yours.

  3. Sweet blocks! I think I would have done a satin stitch for the beak. (embroidery) You did an excellent job though.

  4. Love the flowers! And if you find a good pointy points tutorial I would love to know about it!
