I talked about how I wasn't happy with my February Hearts A Flutter block. After photographing all the blocks a few days ago, I resolved that now was the time to fix it. Because I would one hundred times rather make a new thing than try to work over an existing thing, I made a whole new block. I fixed the stem width and fabric choices I wasn't happy with, and made the arrow points a little better. Improvement? You decide.

Original block:
Replacement block:
I personally think the replacement is much better!

Like the new one. The contrast is much better.

The arrows are much nicer on the new one.

Looks great to me! I just took an applique class and the teacher brought in some of her work and was showing us a block similar to this, and said that she finds that particular style with the bars or stems going to the flowers a challenge to get straight. I am loving the applique but it is a little hard for me. Your blog is helping me. Thanks!
