I love the stuffed oranges and the three dimensional orange blossoms. I love the little bird.
I wish I knew how a piece of this scrumptious orange mottle ended up in my applique fabric stash. I know I didn't buy it as yardage or a fat quarter. It must have been in a bag of scraps I bought somewhere. I found it when I was working on one of the last blocks of the Baltimore Album top I finished a couple months ago. And there was just enough left to use for the oranges on this block. I love the shadings. If I could find this fabric I'd love to use it to make another Dutch Treat quilt. (yep..I'm nuts, I know!).
Here are the first six blocks of this BOM. Be sure to hop over to Lyn Brown's website to read about the significance of each block. Tomorrow she'll be posting a 7th block..can't wait!
