Another Buggy Block

Here is how I received Diane M's block for the Bees, Butterflies, and Beetles round robin.  To me, it looked like she wanted a flower fairy block instead, especially since she stated absolutely no butterflies.  Anyway, there was already a lot of floral stuff on it, so....

I added more flowers.  The green flowers at the diametric ends are from the same fabric - a lace I bought in Bulgaria last year.  They seem to fit the block pretty well.  I also added brass bee and dragonfly charms to the lower set of flowers.  I also added a black and pink dragonfly and a couple of seams.  I haven't heard yet if she likes it, but it's out of the house and on to the next person.

Hi, I also have done some crazy quilting. I am wondering if you are finding things in MVD. I was not into all the crafts the last time I was there so I am excited to go to a Merceria and see what they have!
Teh bloxk is gorgeous!

I really like the way my block looks. There are some very pretty seams, and the bugs are great. I'm sorry I have this silly aversion to butterflies, but all other bugs are very welcome!

Thank you both!
