Sew Sweet Simplicity #2

Here's my second block in Jacquelynne Steves' free block of the month series:
Without applique'

I'm keeping this one sew sweet and simple, using ADORNit's Crazy for Daisies cuteness. The prints just seem to suit Jacquelynne's sweet designs.  And look!  My favorite little hourglass appeared in the corners when I changed up the color placement a little.  Then I cut out the simple applique' with my Go! Baby.
Go! Feathers
I'm going for similar feel for each block, so I'm picking out the star elements in each pattern to give a strong focus with the cheery cherry red print. 
SSS Block #1

  7. Love both of your blocks. I am doing this BOM and it is fun. I decided to do needle turn applique and am quite challenged with that as it has been several years since I did any. I decided to look at a youtube video before starting the second one and I think that helped me understand it a little better.
