I opted for a mix of methods for this section. I am using a bias strip method for the stems, but back basting for the flowers and leaves.
I had abandoned this project earlier finding that it was too busy of a pattern for my taste. I also don't like making the same thing multiple times, so I have opted to make each of the corner floral designs different, blending flowers from the provided designs for #3 & 4. I also changed the shape of the vase.
I'm afraid I'm losing momentum again, so another post may be after American football starts and I have something else to distract me while I stitch.

I failed to take photos of round 3, but it involved taping the basic size of the strip I wanted to end up with.
But I can't stay interested in this for very long....so I'm moving on to some applique. Or maybe a different pieced project inspired by this Geometric Gradation Quilt by Geta Grama

I pulled out an applique project that I haven't worked on for about 1 year.
Why now? Partially because I'm caught up on the Benjamin Biggs QAL
And partially because Esther posted an update on her LE zig zag border
But on the other hand, the style is far fussier than my preference.
My current plan is to finish the border then go back through the released patterns and work in my favorite bits. Very good possibility that it stops at baby quilt size....but time will tell.
