Blocks one, two, three

I am new to this group but have been watching it for quite sometime. I finally decided to add my blocks so everyone can see. I enjoy hand applique so decided to do this project. When I saw it on threadbear web site I sent off for it and started collecting fabric. Here are my first three blocks.
The color of the background is really a yellow gold color. It's looks a little dark in this picture

The seam lines show through on these white flowers. I tried to make the seams fairly even.
I changed the brides hair. I like this better. Before I put all the blocks together I'll put blush on her cheeks. I think shes kind of cute.

  2. Well done, they are lovely , especially the bride, I enjoy seeing how different everyones blocks are. Ann.
