I think the thing I've most enjoyed about this quilting journed is the diversity of challenges each block poses. When I began planning this block, I knew exactly what I wanted to use for the pears. I envisioned them like this.
I quickly realized this fabric was too muddy for my contemporary quilt. So, I thought this would be the perfect pear. I even fussy cut it so the flower motif on the fabric would become the top of the pear.
Decided I didn't care for it either. I finally settled on the fabric you see in the finished block. I like how the green and yellow geometric shapes seem to create a roundness......ok......ok.......I'm over analyzing!
