    This is the first one I tweaked. I made the outer leaves a little bit fatter, and then added in extra petals on the waterlillies. Finaly, because I wasn't keen on the original centre circle, I changed mine into a lilly pad.

    Lesley, you added extra petals to the lillies, didn't you? Really is lovely, as usual. I just don't think about changing anything until the block is done.

    Aaah, poor Elle, so sorry. Glad you eventually got it.

    And Kathy, yes, I thought the waterlillies looked a bit moth eaten until I added the extra petals. More work, but I like it better.

    QuiltnNan, you have been so kind and visited all our blocks with nice comments - thank you.

    I really do like the way you did this block, so much better than the original IMHO, may have to do a copy cat on that one.

    Be my guest, it will be interesting to see the variations on this one.

    Lesley, I plan to shamelessly copy you on the additions!

    Both of your blocks are lovely!

    Go ahead Patti - I have no objections and I put pics of the design drawn on the fabric so people could if they wanted to.

    Here is mine...finished....FINALLY! I think this one took me about 14 hours. I know...thats disgustingly slow! Anyway..its a 7"..so the petals and leaves are really skinny. I added the extra petals and only did the center in 2 pieces(via Lesely).. but I had forgotten about that bit of embroidery in the center lily pad...and it desparately needs it! I'll go back and do that before I put the block away. I'm not happy with it....but it will go into the "boy, did I ever get some much needed practice on points on that one!" area of the quilt. LOL!

    I think you did a wonderful job on that block, Patti. All your tips meet where they're supposed to. I have a problem with that sometimes (even tho I'm doing the 10" blocks), so I am impressed. And I continue to love the colors you are using. Keep up the good work. Just think how relaxing it will seem when you get to your 10" blocks.

    Thanks, DeeCee. I'm glad you like it. The pattern in the center is called Swirling Tulips. This was a pattern I bought for a class I took a couple of years ago. After the class I took, it ended up in my UFO pile and I just found it again a couple of months ago. I was trying to figure if I wanted to do more blocks and make it into a quilt and then I decided to join the International Round Robin that began last September and use it for my center block for that. It has three borders on it now and I think will only get one more as one member of our group has not been heard from for months and I asked that my quilt not be sent to her for the fourth border. I would rather it come home short a border than not come home at all. I absolutely love what the gals have done with it.

    You can find the pattern at http://www.quiltsbylyn.com/patterns1.htm It's in the middle of the 9th row down. It really is a fun pattern. The only bad thing is that it calls for a special ruler.
