I finally got this done. I modified the bird by making it smaller and more like the birds from block three. The flowers were cut as one piece and appliquéd as such. In retrospect I realise I should have gone deeper with my cuts on the large flowers so the center circle wouldn't look so out of place. I corrected that with the smaller ones. Over all I'm pleased with my effort.

This block was hand appliquéd using needle turn. Block is 10.5 inches unfinished.

Gini and Linny,

thanks for the kind words. I really wanted to keep the bird in this block and I'm glad I could. The batiks are really fun to work with. It looks like I used more fabrics than I actually did.

Gini,

I never thought of my flowers as whimsical. I'm glad you said that 'cause I was thinking of replacing the center circles with larger ones.

Here's my Drooping Daisies.  I'm going to be an expert at tiny circles by the time I'm done with this quilt.

I love your block Linny. The blues are so vibrant and your circles are perfect.

I'm loving this project. I'm getting better and more confident in my appliqué skills.

Thanks, Kris.  I liked making that little bird.  I feel my skills improving as I do more, also.
