Joy Quilt Block and Pattern

This is the Joy quilt block.  It pairs with the Faith quilt block that I showed last week.
This is an update for a block pattern in my Etsy shop.  Here's how I made it:

I used a fusible applique method for this block,  Here's some of the leaf pieces laid out on the back of the green fabric.

These are the flower centers fused to the back of the yellow orange fabric.

Cutting out the fused patches.

Arranging leaves on the background square.

Arranging stems and flowers on the background square.

Adding more leaves.  At this point the patches are partially fused in place on the background square.

The perfect shade of yellow orange Aurifil thread to stitch down the flower centers.

Zigzag stitching around the flower centers to secure the patches.

Zigzag stitching around the flower petals with a matching red thread.

So pretty!  One flower and half of it's leaves done.

Still zigzag stitching the patches to secure them in place.

And done!  Here's a close up of one of the finished flowers.
