    I don't like the looks of my orange flower so will have to change that out somehow. I already pulled the entire thing up and turned it because I messed up and put it sideways. That just wouldn't work with the other 9 blocks that are done.

    You are making me want to do one of these, conblond. I don't think I could work this hard, so quit that!

    Seriously though .... you are doing a great job on this quilt. How many more blocks are there to do?

    Only two left. The Pansy is block 2 and Camillia is Block 1. I have to leave and take my Husqvarna to the shop. I really do need groceries too. Guess I should get a shower and change out of my PJ's :lol:

    I really don't like that ornage flower. I put one on the picture post with yellow in the center but didn't like that either. Not sure what I'm gonna do with it. Have to work on the Sunflower leaves too.

    I've decided to make the center look like the other ones and take out that tube which looks like a bell and now that I look at the last one I really don't like the center on it either. Might just take that junk all out and make a NORMAL flower. The 3D stuff doesn't cut it for me.. I'll put it back in when I get that done.

    I have 2 more to do and fix the leaves that I don't like on the Sunflower. Then starts the fun. I will have to cut them all to the same size and I'm using a dark greenish bluish fabric for sashing and border. Might start the back ground on the pansy tonight. The last one is the Camellia..

    The bells are gone now so I can make new middles with some other fabric. It's not like I don't have every color under the rainbow in here. With 6 totes, two huge piles of fabric on two shelves and 3 boxes of stuff. Can't ever have too much can you? :wink:

    NO, I like the orange flower!! It looks like one I have in my flower bed but I don't know the name. Only difference is the real one in my flowerbed has a brownish center.

    Thanks for saying that. I already pulled off the stuff I don't want and may put in a brown center. Don't know if I' have rust but I think I do have some. I can add a cream center and the rust with the little yellow thing. I need to jazz up the light yellow one too. We'll just figure it out tomorrow. Going to bed now. Nite Nite

    I don't like cats. I have one with a mouse though on my next quilt. Colorado Gold. I think you can find that on line.

    I am happy to say I did redo those two daffodills and they look so much better.
    See if you like them better and let me know.
