I was so excited to make this last pot in the Flower in a Pot Quilt Along that I completely forgot to take pictures along the way! Oops.
Here is the first two layers of pieces. I really love these leaves. They're make a statement.
Here is the block mostly finished without the top piece of the flower. I had a really hard time choosing a pot fabric for this flower. I knew right away that I wanted the flower to be red so I went in search of a fabric that would work for the pot and had red. It was really hard to find a batik that fit this! Thus I ended up with a fairly simple dot print. I like the end result.
Here is the back of the block at this point. If you look closely you can see how I stop and start when I know a piece is going to be put on top.
And here is the final block. Check out the top of the flower! I totally fussy cut that piece to look like it radiated. It's from a batik that had circles of dots that got larger as you went out. This is also a sneak peak at the quilting. More on that on Saturday!

I hope you get a chance to quilt today!
