don't panic, you aren't behind,  this block isn't due until august.  

i don't have this block finished yet, but i wanted to show you again, how i used the lining for the flower as a template for placing the leaves.  this works really well, if you pay attention.  i think i can fudge and if i can't i will add a leaf.   i forgot about the end of the stem on the upper right.  how i could not see a stem end sticking out i have no idea, but there it is.   if i tilt the flower just a bit different from the original lay out, i think it will work. 

see the faint white line on the bottom of the stem to the upper right, just above the white petal?   that's where the white petal should have ended.   i left the ends of my stems about a half inch beyond the drawn line instead of a 1/4 inch so i have a bit of fudge room.

i should have taken a picture of my ends, but i usually leave a generous 1/2 inch on the edge of the pieces i will be tucking under.  it's nice to have a bit extra when you mess up like i just did on this block.  i mis-measured something, most likely where the stem ended.   if i had curved it a bit to the left it probably would have fit just fine.   the good thing,   it is applique and can be fixed or fudged.

Gini, I thought "fudging" was just adding your personal touch to a standard pattern. We all have to add a little "personality" to each block. How boring if they were all identical to each other. LOL Great tip for people who need to learn its okay to change it up. ;-)

Gini, love your block, I think we were on the same thought, these are the colors I picked for mine as well.  It is nice to know that the colors will work.

Here's my block 5.   I'm working on the last block now, but it's so large I know it will take a while to finish it.
