Applique bird block

What was your source for this quilting project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Ode to the 1930's: A Sampler Quilt Link to website or photo https://www.frommyhearttoyourhands.com/Qstore/Qstore.cgi What are you most proud of? This was my first appliqu block on a quilt. I machine appliqud it. The birds, leaves, stem, and flowers are all appliqu. Also, it was my first time to do a block that required some diagonal rows. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Go slow and take your time. You may need to "fussy cut" any larger print items for appliqu so that the right design shows. There is a little white line on my left leaf that I wish I had been more careful to avoid.
