    I'm trying to come up with a block I can applique one block at a time for portability. What do y'all think? I know right now it looks like a fried egg but it's just a rough draft.

    Fried egg?!! LOL - I think it's a great looking block.

    What about hearts? with the heart blocks alternating with a red/white 9 patch pattern?

    I think both blocks are cute--but I am partial to the heart alternating with a nine patch of pink and red (or pink and white or red and white.)

    I agree - the first one does kind of look like a fried egg with garnish - but I really love the idea of doing applique in sections like that.

    I LOVE eggs any way you cook them So I vote for ... the flower one I think it has so many wonderful possibilities. You could do plaids in them or wild new florals or a watercolor blend...the possibilities are endless. I love your design. Pleas post when you have some floral (fried egg) blocks done!

    Great job designing your own block!

    I think the sunflower block will not resemble an egg once you are using a print fabric! I love the heart block too!!! :D :D :D
