More October Flowers

For Traveling Threads this month, I made these flowers for Jill (aka Spinster Sister). She wanted something fun and loves layering. I'm hoping it didn't end up too busy but I'm in love with the flowers.

Traveling Threads block for Spinster Sister


Edited to Add: I made these flowers in the same way that log cabin blocks are made. I randomly cut a center shape and then added strips one at time on each edge going around. If there's interest, I'll be happy to do a tutorial about it.

They're raw edge appliqued on with Steam-A-Steam Lite (a lightweight fusible web). I ironed them on (following the Seam-A-Steam instructions) and straight-stitched around the edges.
