Happy Birds group

Our Happy Birds group met this week,  and scratched our heads. I felt a bit of frustration in trying to piece the center medallion.

Perhaps, I was too cavalier about the piecing, because that didn't work.
I even tried hand piecing it. Even before pressing, I could see it was hopeless. sigh....
One of our group decided to try appliquing each colored piece and then attaching that to the next circle.
It looks better, but I am still not good at applique so I will save that for the parts where I have to applique....

others in our group, moved on, intentionally, to tracing.
several rippings and that can't be right....
but lots of inspiration
And now I have a plan. I will not let this be the place I quit.
