The Start on My First Block

Hi everyone!  This will be the first large applique quilt that I have made.  I liked the posts of "revised versions" of the first block, so I took freezer paper and cut out a version that suited me.  But after eliminating the four teardrops in the center part, and adding the two cuts, the center background part looks like a crab!  LOL  I haven't added the small flowers to the corners yet, and I will post again after adding them.   

Thanks to Brenda and Gay for offering this block of the month for us.  It is very pretty, and thank you Sharon for setting up this blog.  It will be so much fun to see everyone's progress.
