Starting a new project with French General fabrics

I started making Roses for a new applique quilt. So far I have the first block completed, with a plan in my mind as to what I want the completed quilt to look like. Yesterday I sat and drafted the next part of the design and I cant wait to get some time to start making more Roses for the next stage.

I have been using the freezer paper applique method shown on my you tube channel, this method seems to be working a treat with no need to wash the block after I have finished it.

I have taken a few progress shots while making the first block, you can see how fabulously messy it gets when choosing fabrics for the Roses. I love that creative mess that happens while lost in playing with fabric.
