Rachel Meyer, my 6th block

First, I have not yet begun Oma's Blues other than pulling fabric. I want to think about how to approach it and am trying to keep to my plan of prioritizing things in my life. I will start it this year but I have a few things that need working on first. With that in mind I am excited to share the 6th completed Rachel Meyer block.

Or maybe it is almost completed. I am thinking I may want to add a little outline embroidery around that light pink but I am going to wait until I see it with the other blocks. Some of the embroidery is obvious, like stems and feet, but other embellishments are just added here and there as I see fit. So much fun to just make this quilt my own.

I also pieced a couple more Stonefields blocks. I really need to keep working steadily on this quilt as the fabrics I pulled are taking over my appliqué prep area!

And of course there are all kinds of other things on the go too as I am constantly switching from hand work to machine work. Hopefully I will have something fun to show soon.

I love the little buds on the large flowers---so many different types of flowers in this one block!! The green leaf fabric is awesome. Stonefield blocks are neat design & makes me want to do this pattern.
