Fiesta Flowers!


So I'm finally getting these done! Aaagh!
Here is the ironed together first block :) It will be raw edge appliqued.
The theme was Fiesta and my favorite thing about a fiesta would have to be the colorful skirts and flowers that are worn, so, I took that idea and ran!
I layered my flower with color in the center but then I decided to mix 'em up a bit just for fun!
My second block will be a bit different but still fun! I'll post as they come along!

I also had some issues with shrinking of the backing but went ahead and just tried to give enough edge space to trim and sew :)
I'm loving all the blocks and can't wait to see them all together, but I guess that means I better stop talking and start sewing!
