Morning Glory: Part 6

This month it's time for the quilt's namesake block: the trumpeting morning glory block.
It's a beautiful and hopeful block that marks the four directional points around the frame.
Here's how I made mine:
As usual there's a production line. You know I love my applique production lines..
 
I've chosen to break down my morning glory head into two parts, a larger 'windmill' shape background and smaller pieces to insert between the spaces.
Here I'm pinning my larger windmill shape into position
And adding the in between pieces neatly and carefully. 
I am actually glue basting tiny dots of glue on the overlap area to hold it all in position. 
 As I add each shape, I double check the pieces against the pattern shape to make sure it hasn't grown.
 Somehow this leaf has grown, so I will pull back the turn edge and wiggle it smaller, back into shape with the pattern outline.
 And here are my 4 Morning Glory blocks ready and set aside
 I stitched the red applique shape just for a bit of texture and I'm very happy with it.
Finished and set aside!
