Revised Beyond The Cherry Trees Block 6


This breath of spring block now has a few more layers, some hidden stitches found and a cute cheddar bird but I think it's complete.

Here's the center flower with the additional layer outline stitched and the tiny bird.

It turns out the two flowers on the sides of the block are not the same as I first thought. This is the one on the right with the additional bottom layer of green outline stitched.

I was really excited when I took out the magnifying glass to look more closely at the flower on the left. The tiny brown pieces of fuzz looked like they might be more of the purple print fabric originally used for the grapes but I'm not sure.

I did some reverse stitching on one of the flowers to take a look at what might be left of the fabric underneath. It doesn't appear to have any print design on it.

The fabric seems to match up to the worn away fabric in another block that was used for leaves and stems so I think it's pretty safe to assume the lower layers were green.
I think I'll decide on a fabric for the center of the lower left flower when I get to it. If purple looks good - I'll use it. If not, I'll go with the green.

    What a lot of detective work! I am really enjoying reading this…..I will have to get some projects finished so I can make room for this one.
    Thanks for doing this on your blog.

    Gay, I am really loving this quilt you are sharing with us. I have just found myself sharing in your excitement as I looked at those photos! I have completed the first 5 blocks and had the 6th taped together ready to go. I must have known something – checking in here before working on it today! Thank you so much for bringing us such a treasure.
