Challenging--overlay and post stitches, attention to counts and rounds required, multiple round switching

Colorful and unique overlay block which takes creative license in creating the illusion of 4 hummingbirds sipping the nectar of flowers in the middle of the block. Birds’ feet corners complete the picture. A block, when completed, will make you feel proud that you accomplished it, and persevered.

Pattern is detailed in the write-up, and Round Tutorial photos are provided.

Design has been presented as a Mystery Block and has been thoroughly tested and approved.
