What materials did you use? Batik scraps for Blk 1. ome stitching and beading done before assembly into 4 patch. Block 4 used fewer fabrics so I could highlight bird.

What are you most proud of? getting a SQUARE block!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Cut your muslin squares slightly larger than called for. You can always trim but you cannot add to make your 8-1/2" trimmed block. Watch videos all the way through before beginning block 2.

Excellent that you dove into Method 4 with some fancy fabrics. They highlight the bird wonderfully. Good stitching on the Method 1 Block too.
