Biggs Quilt Block 5

I just finished block 5 of the Just Takes 2 Biggs Quilt. This is a block a month project consisting of appliqué blocks. The blocks are available from Sentimental Stitches and Dear Jane.  I tried a light green this month. It allows the deep purple buds to show up better. I also to lighten the quilt so it won't scream "Christmas". I love Christmas but want a quilt that doesn't look so seasonal. So I'll use a variety of greens and continue alternating the red and purple as the main color for the block centers. 

This block will complete the 1st row of the quilt so I need to give thought to quilting. I'm think of doing a row at a time, quilt as you go method.
