I used my Quick Curve Ruler and Jenny's tutorial to make curved 8" by 6" finished blocks. You need to watch this video and this one if you want to make the block.
Then for the square blocks (Chartreuse by Windham Fabrics) I cut these 6", grabbed a plant pot, drew around to get a circle, cut out, eyeballed the placement on the plain fabric and then raw-edged sewed them in place with a short running stitch very close to the edge.
The stalk/straight blocks; the background fabric either side is cut 2 3/4" and the black and red fabrics were cut just over 2".
And on the back I added a few extra blocks.
And even though the backing fabric is not from Bye Bye Birdy I had to use it really.
And the binding is a Chicopee green just to echo some of the bits of green in the feature fabrics.
And the quilting is just straight line up and down to echo the vertical shapes.
