Difficulty of block: moderate
Number of pieces: 21
Method used: hand applique
Chicko's Calla Lily was not as difficult to make as I thought it would be. But, it sure was time consuming. Lots of applique and points to match. If you plan on making this block, I would make the melons just a tiny bit smaller. The pattern, as is, has the melons touching the outside seam of the block. Problems may arise when adding the sashing.
Sorry about the photos. It looks like my choice of fabric was not the best for this pattern. The close-up photo certainly isn't any easier on the eyes.
