Joseph's floral delight

I have not posted in a while; we have a small farm, more a petting zoo really & the weird winter has made extra work but when I saw Joseph's Delight, I know I wanted to make it.  Anvils/Thunderbirds really are a favorite of mine & I am always on the look-out for a variation.

The block itself was fun.  I think I would handle the open bias seams another way if I were making several & I am sure my corners would improve then (yes, I know they are not great, in my defense I made this blocks over two days in-between trying to get antibiotics into a dog-wounded emu, which is not so easy at it sounds).  I also wish I had seen the scrappy version before I cut mine out; that is definitely the way I will go next time.

I like your flowered fabric. Life certainly gets in the way, doesn't it. Dog-wounded emu? Must be an exciting useless ranch!
