Yes We Can block 4

I am part of small group of Dear Jane quilters who are embarked on a long-term project to create a quilt of 4.5" blocks (inspired by the Dear Jane quilt), for President Obama. This is the "Yes we can" quilt project. Let me quote from our yahoo group website:"This group is dedicated to the project of building a quilt to present to Mr. & Mrs. Obama to commemorate the election and inauguration of our country's first African-American president. Our quilt is inspired by the famous "Dear Jane" quilt, but it is not going to be a DJ replica. We are sticking with the 4.5" finished block size, but what each block looks like depends entirely on its creator. We are using a specific background fabric and civil war reproduction fabric. "

Our SECOND deadline has passed while I was away and sick. For round 2, we did 4.5 inch blocks that were not Dear Jane blocks, not Dear Hannah blocks. Above is a bud and leaves from a Carol Doak paper piecing pattern book. Though I could also look like a green crab with a mutant pink head.

I am not sure what round 3 will be.
