Lotus flower block

I am still working away on these Chinese style blocks. This quilt is to have 9 blocks with some sort of appliques border. I still haven't designed the borders but the blocks are all prepped and ready for sewing. This block really does look like the lotus flowers I saw in China. Ponds were filled with them - so beautiful.

Even more than the other blocks, the lotus petals really come to life when all the edges are turned under. Wish I could have seen the blossoms in the ponds, but I'm happy to have at least seen the blocks in person. Can't wait to see the quilt come together.
