happy flower qal week 22

Oh my scrappy stars! (I should probably stop describing these blocks as "scrappy" because they are ALL scrappy!

Believe it or not, I machine pieced this one.  Yep.  Wholelotta inset seams.  But it turned out pretty well. :)

 

These lollie flowers are super cute.  HOWEVER, I think I'm going to change the green one to pink.  And the leaves?  Whoa are they every T.I.N.Y!  I think I would embroider them if I did this block again.  I'm also thinking the stems are a bit too light.  I should redo them darker ...

Very cute! Both of these look great!

You could use one of the leaf embroidery stitches built into your sewing machine in place of the tiny appliqued ones.
