Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend (Not)

This block, "C-7 Megan's Mountain Laurel", is accurately labeled as an advanced-level block in the DJ software. I'm afraid that the mountain laurel that blooms in Pennsylvania is much prettier than my block.

I paper-pieced the diamonds around the center square and then appliqued the four outer diamonds in the corners. Again, a lesson in applique. I figure that by the time I'm finished with my Baby Jane quilt, I will have learned everything there is to learn about what NOT to do when appliqueing. But I'm satisfied enough with this one to move on to the next (probably not a block involving any applique work).
