In Jane Stickle's original quilt, this block has 13 pieces -- four curved pieces for the background, one center and eight melons. I don't have the time or patience to deal with that, so mine is made with just two pieces of fabric. One for the background and one for the entire dark green part. The dark green part was sewn on using the same method that I explained recently in this post.
This is "F-9, Autumn Aster", an intermediate-level block. Again, because of the method that I used, this was about an hour's worth of work.
